After a playground altercation between eleven-year-old boys, the parents of the "victim" invite the parents of the "bully" for a meeting to resolve the matter. At first, diplomatic niceties are observed, but as the meeting progresses, and the rum flows, tensions emerge and the gloves come off, turning a polite discussion about childrearing into verbal warfare. The results are a razor-sharp, biting comedy where no one can escape the carnage. Winner of the 2009 Tony Award.
