God of Carnage

Rated 5.0

In this Yasmina Reza play two couples meet for a civilized discussion about their young sons. The boys have had a playground scuffle that cost one a couple of teeth. The parents meet to work out their differences and, pleased with how reasonably they are all behaving, one asks “How many parents, when standing up for their children, become infantile themselves?” Audience members soon find out the answer to that question. The script is funny and the performances spellbinding. F, Sa 8pm; Su 2pm. Through 4/1. $15-$20. Wilkerson Theatre, 1723 25th Street; (916) 491-0940; www.resurrectiontheatre.com. B.S.
