About the Play
After one child hurts another at a public park, the two sets of parents meet up to discuss the issue in a civil fashion. But as with any great theatre, conflict quickly bubbles up to the surface.
Winner of the 2009 Tony Award for Best Play, this one act satire is a remarkable piece of writing exploring the unravelling of diplomacy in a dark and contemporary way.

CAST:

2 women and 2 men. Details below.

(Note - Younger performers who can pull off a more mature look are encouraged to audition)

Veronica Houllie - female 30-40
• Veronica believes Annette and Alan to be bad parents, her judgmental nature contrasts with her desire of peace between the children.

Annette Reille - female 30-40
• Annette is a strong defender of her child but she lacks self confidence and is on the brink of a panic attack during the play, that leads her to vomit all over a table.
