Studio 180 and the off Mirvish series presented this play, with Sarah Orenstein as Annette, John Bourgeois as her husband Alan, Linda Kash as Veronica and Tony Nappo as her husband Michael.
What starts as a civilized attempt by two sets of parents to deal with a school yard fight ends in a screaming match far worse than the battle the two kids had been involved in. Everyone in the audience who had kids, and probably most of the rest of the audience could see this happening. When it comes to your kids you are not rational, but fiercely defensive.
Add to that the tensions of two marriages and the God of Carnage has a field day.
Excellent performances by the whole cast. We liked Orenstein and Bourgeois in last year’s Studio 180 production of The Normal Heart.
