Winner of the 2009 Tony Award

A playground altercation between eleven-year-old boys brings together two sets of Brooklyn parents for a meeting to resolve the matter

At first, diplomatic niceties are observed, but - as the meeting progresses and the rum flows - tensions emerge and the gloves come off ...

... leaving the couples with more than just their liberal principles in tatters

REVIEWS

"A streamlined anatomy of the human animal ... delivers the cathartic release of watching other people's marriages go boom. A study in the tension between civilized surface and savage instinct" ~ NY Times

"Elegant, acerbic and entertainingly fueled on pure bile. It's Reza's sharpest work since Art" ~ Variety

"Brutally entertaining in another of Christopher Hampton's exquisite translations, [Reza] cannily manipulates social observations that appeal to vast audiences and creates characters that bring out the best in actors" ~ NY Newsday
