Winner of the 2009 Tony Award for Best Play, this dark comedy deals with two sets of parents who meet to have a civilized discussion regarding a playground altercation between their 11-year-old sons. What starts as a cordial meeting, quickly unravels. As tensions arise, the adults become increasingly childish, and the evening descends into chaos.
Alan Raleigh – 40-55+ – Annette’s husband, a successful, high-powered attorney. Obsessed with work, and somewhat ruthless.
Annette Raleigh – 35-50 – Alan’s wife, works in wealth management. Superficially acquiescent, but a bit phony.
Michael Novak – 40-55+ – Veronica’s husband, successful self-made wholesaler. Initially appears to be laid back, but has plenty of opinions.
Veronica Novak – 35-50 – Michael’s wife, volunteers in an art history bookstore. Writing a book on Darfur. Altruistic, also tense and controlling.
