Featured Reviews For God of Carnage


Beating Up the Bourgeoisie - Wall Street Journal
The conceit of "God of Carnage" is that Ms. Reza's couples are cut from different bolts of the same cloth. The wives are self-righteous liberals who believe that good will can solve all problems, the husbands thuggish conservatives equally certain (as Mr. Daniels's character puts it) that violence is "a law of life. . . . People struggle until they're dead." The point of the play, insofar as it has one, is that the husbands are more or less right: No sooner do the wives start drinking than they shed their bourgeois inhibitions and come out swinging.

God of Carnage: Screw the Middle Classes! I Will Never Accept Them! - BroadwayWorld.com
There's a fine, fine line... No, let me rephrase that. There's a wide gaping canyon between clever social commentary and unmotivated slapstick. And while I'm not suggesting that Yasmina Reza's God of Carnage had me longing for the subtle nuances of Messrs. Moe, Larry and Curly I will admit to being reminded of the famous Tallulah Bankhead quip, "There's less to this than meets the eye."
