La storia vede protagoniste due coppie, che si incontrano per discutere di un litigio avvenuto tra i rispettivi figli.

E in quanto tale si darnage in una falsa apertura dove le persone non riescono mai a trovare un vero e proprio contatto. Viene fatto largo uso delle frasi di rezw Anche i gesti rispecchiano a pieno come ogni comportamento abbia un secondo fine, e come il riguardo sia solo apparente: Di credere ad un possibile cambiamento, no? Quattro personaggi, due coppie borghesi che diru confrontano mettendo a nudo un livore che si annida in ogni pertugio delle loro esistenze.

La violenza e la prevaricazione sono pensieri meno assurdi di quanto i protagonisti stessi non vogliano ammettere, e le praticano senza esserne consapevoli. La convivenza in civile Uno psicodramma, una commedia noir, un dramma da camera: Forse sbagliamo, ma crediamo al potere pacificante della cultura!

This short play is a wonderful read, and works best if read on one or two sittings. I’d suggest not reading the blurbs on this one before picking it up. All you really need to know is that the play is about two sets of parents who meet to deal with the behavior of their children. The entire play unfolds during carnnage one meeting. To say more would spoil it for you, so I’ll stop there. Les personnages sont hauts en couleur, parfois caricaturaux, mais on s’en amuse d’autant plus.


I’m adding a star to this review as I just saw yxsmina play and think it does better on stage than it does on the page. This may, of course, be universally true of all good plays there are some bad ones that make excellent readingbut this play in particular requires a fair amount of physical byplay and nonverbal interaction. It’s a good read, either way, and that’s what this site is all about. What makes Benjamin a better name than Bruno?

And the director’s argument in yadmina program–that this play was about universals and could farnage as easily and more relevantly, to an American audience, take ke in New York–was frankly ridiculous.

ANY good play is presumably universal enough to transcend the very specific names of its characters. And there are d few attitudes and assumptions cieu this play not just names that are, in fact rather distinctly European, and hang a little oddly in an American setting they’re not terribly significant, but one does notice them. This play blows up wonderfully. It’s an afternoon’s conversation between two couples, one of whose son has battered the other about the mouth with a stick on the playground.

What emerges is an often hilarious bit of madness as the couples degenerate into various petulant, childish, and violent behaviors themselves. Plenty to say about violence, the will to resist violence, personal responsibility, white guilt, and above all the degree to which we are one another’s keepers. I’d love to see a prod This play blows up wonderfully. I’d love to see a production of this some day. And after reading other comments, it looks like I have to finally pick up Who’s Afraid of Czrnage Woolf?

Dos parejas se encuentran para solucionar un problema menor entre sus hijos varones. Matrimonios que rezan sin saberlo a un “dios salvaje”. A crackling play with sharp teeth and geza tension. Well-drawn characters politely discussing their children’s schoolyard brutality explodes into dismal insights on marriage, genocide, sex and violence.

Scathing and cynical yet funny. Due coppie, due mariti e due mogli. Quanto dura, questo combattimento tutti contro tutti? Cadono le maschere, si sbriciolano i piedistalli, si svelano dy bugie su cui sono basate quattro vite, un tiro di un sasso fa cadere una casa enorme, ma fatta di sabbia.

Tremendo, si ride amarissimamente. So I read it. In the play, two sets of parents living in New York are meeting after a playground incident where one boy has injured another by yasmins him in the mouth with a stick, knocking two teeth out.


Le Dieu du carnage

Now trying to be civil the parents are trying to figure out the best way to resolve the conflict. Within the open moments they are already arguing about the language used to describe the incident. The phone calls, the language, the fight, the flower arrangement and dessert used to soften the conversation, the rum, and some vomiting all start to degrade and dissolve all the built up goodwill and the true natures of the people and especially the social masks begin to expose the actual feelings.

The primary feeling of the whole situation, especially bringing the phonecalls into, is self-preservation.

Le Dieu du carnage by Yasmina Reza (4 star ratings)

I saw this play performed in London and it was very funny, witty and wonderfully acted. Reading it is not quite as satisfying but it is good to study how these two couples, who start off amenably discussing their respective teenage sons’ fight during which one lost two teeth and the other is charged as a bully.

Needless the say the carmage come to loggerheads too. I understand in the film, it switches to the two boys at the end who have sorted their differences and are friends again.

Perfect iro I saw this play performed in London and it was very funny, witty and wonderfully acted. Perfect irony that’s missing in the play.

My Life with Frank Zappa En plus, Reza sait critiquer le milieu bourgeois avec une langue simple mais sauvage.

So I saw this. And I saw it a long time ago. I actually forgot I had seen it I’m giving it four stars because I liked what I saw but I can’t remember a whole lot about it yamsina.
