Yasmine Reza’s God of Carnage depicts precisely what the title of her play states. Two couples, both of the upper-middle to upper class, meet together one night to discuss a seemingly simple matter: one couple’s son has knocked out two incisors of the other’s with a stick. Initially, the parents—Alan and Annette Raleigh and Michael and Veronica Novak—act as civilized adults trying to sort out the problem without hurting anyone’s feelings.

The entire dynamic of the play shifts when Annette, tired of Alan’s shamelessness in talking on his cell phone constantly, vomits all over the Novaks’ coffee table and Veronica’s precious books.
