Bernard is planning a romantic weekend
with his chic Parisian mistress in his charming converted French
farmhouse, whilst his wife, Jacqueline, is away. He has arranged for a
cordon bleu cook to prepare gourmet delights -- and has invited his best
friend, Robert, along as well to provide an alibi. It's foolproof; what
could possibly go wrong? Well ... suppose Robert turns up not realizing
quite why he has been invited. Suppose Robert and Jacqueline are secret
lovers, and consequently determined that Jacqueline will NOT leave for
the weekend. Suppose the cook has to pretend to be the mistress and the
mistress is unable to cook. Suppose everyone's alibi gets confused with
everyone else's. An evening of hilarious confusion ensues as Bernard and
Robert improvise at breakneck speed.
Percy Jackson is a teenage boy who always
seems to get into trouble, no matter how hard he tries to be good. When
he is expelled from school for the sixth time, his mother decides that it
is time for Percy to know the truth. The Greek gods are real and, what’s
more, Percy is a demigod, the son of Poseidon. Along with fellow demigod
Annabeth (the daughter of Athena) and best friend and protector Grover
(who happens to be a Satyr), Percy must go on an epic quest to retrieve
Zeus’ stolen lightning bolt and prevent war amongst the gods. The quest
turns into an epic adventure, with the Furies, Medusa, and Ares (the god
of war) among those wanting to stop Percy in his tracks. With time
running out, Percy soon discovers that nothing is normal when you’re a
Winner of the 2009 Tony Award for Best Play, God of
Carnage relates an evening in the lives of two couples, residents of a
tIny Brooklyn neighborhood, who meet to discuss a playground incident.
Alan and Annette’s son hit Michael and Veronica’s son in the face with a
stick, resulting in two broken teeth. The four of them agree to discuss
the incident civilly, but, as the night wears on and drinks are imbibed,
the polite veneer breaks down. The couples initially spar against each
other, but the men gang up on the women and the spouses switch sides as
the fighting continues. Reza’s play suggests that our civilized trappings
do a poor job of hiding our venality and bile.
