The Story

Fast, furious and very funny, this winner of the 2009 Tony Award for Best Play is a 90- minute thrill ride to the most dangerous place on earth: parenthood. After their children are involved in a playground brawl, two sets of savvy parents meet to sip espresso and politely discuss the matter. When the veneer of refined sophistication quickly cracks and their evening spins into chaos, the gloves come off and arguments become tantrums in a hilariously uncivilized free-for-all.
