In this dark comedy, a playground altercation between eleven-year-old boys brings together two sets of Brooklyn parents for a meeting to resolve the matter. As the evening progresses, their civilized façade quickly crumbles and their conversation quickly descends into chaos as tensions rise and secrets are revealed. With its biting satire and hilarious dialogue, this play offers a witty and thought-provoking commentary on human nature and social decorum.

Man with glass of rum, tie untied, man with red t-shirt, looking upset, two women sit on a grey couch, both looking upset.
Woman in red checked sweater, vomiting over a coffee table and onto a man in a suit.


Neat living room with a woman and man seated on a gray couch, a man standing behind and a woman in a red checked sweater sitting on a modern black chair,
Two women lying upside down on a couch, laughing with their fit in the air. Two disheveled men look on from the background, unamused.
