Two couples meet to have a civil discussion regarding a schoolyard fight between their sons. What results is a savagely hysterical night of tantrums and tears before bedtime — and the kids aren’t even there! This sharp-edged new play is a 90-minute thrill ride that takes you into the most dangerous place on earth: parenthood.


“Reza’s commercial success is often held against her. But here, as so often, she holds the mirror up to bourgeois hypocrisy with the savage indignation of a born satirist.”
Michael Billington, The Guardian
