Ironically, I missed seeing the hit Broadway production because of the car bomber who parked a few yards away and I nonchalantly strolled to the box office while the loaded SUV was sputtering and sparking. Still, this was a dynamite production, with a brilliant cast, who never faltered in their depiction of seemingly sane people going Boom! Here’s a play showing how under the veneer of Civilization lurks the threat of Chaos. The God of Carnage is waiting and when He strikes watch out! This War is Hilarious. Here we are witness to loyalties shifting, man against man, woman against woman, men against women, wives against husbands, rages flaring, old wounds opened, resentments exploding and emotions ravaged. All great fun! Bravo to Director Melody Rahbari and the Umwelt Theatre Collective.
