God of Carnage, Opening on Broadway, Set in Cobble Hill

God of Carnage, by the French playwright Yasmina Reza, is about the meeting of the parents of two boys who have been involved in a playground fight, and how that meeting degenerates from civility to catastrophe. It is described as “a comedy of manners without the manners.” The play as written by Reza was set in Paris. It was translated into English by Christopher Hampton, and had a successful run in London. According to the Wall Street Journal:

With “God of Carnage” for Broadway, Mr. Warchus [the director], Mr. Hampton and Ms. Reza changed the setting from a Parisian neighborhood to Cobble Hill, Brooklyn. Previously, her plays had always kept their original setting. Hope Davis, a Brooklyn resident, suggested the neighborhood during rehearsals after they had decided on a New York locale.

Ms. Davis plays one of the mothers in Carnage. One of the fathers is played by James Gandolfini of Sopranos fame, and the other by Jeff Daniels. The other mother is Marcia Gay Harden.

Carnage has been in previews since February 28, but officially opens tomorrow night at the Bernard Jacobs Theater, 242 West 45th Street, Manhattan.
