A playground altercation between eleven-year-old boys brings together two sets of Brooklyn parents 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, leaving the couples with more than just their liberal principles in tatters. Yasmina Reza is a French playwright, actress, novelist and screenwriter. Her plays 'ART,' along with 'God of Carnage' have both won the Tony award for Best Play. Elizabeth Kitsos-Kang earned an MFA in Acting from the University of Virginia in 1991. Since then she has been working as a local professional actress, director, scriptwriter and acting teacher. She has been part time Theatre Professor at GW since 1996 and directed GW's freshman orientation Scenes from College Life through their freshman orientation program (Colonial Inauguration) for 23 years. Elizabeth is also a founding member, Lead Teaching Artist, and Executive Staff member of Educational Theatre Company (ETC); an Arlington based non-profit outreach Theatre Company. ETC brings Shakespeare, and other theatre classes, residencies, workshops and camps to Arlington students and communities. Elizabeth has been teaching children and adults (including senior citizens in ETC’s Creative Age program, and men and women experiencing homelessness in ETC’s/Street Sense’s Devising Hope Program) for several years. As a longtime member of the Actors Equity Association, Elizabeth has performed at several local theatres. Her acting credits include: Amstel In Tel- Aviv (Source Theatre) for which she won the Outstanding Lead Actress Award at the Source Theatre Festival; 'In Good Company: the Power Edition' (Horizons Theater), 'The Invisible Room' (the Kennedy Center), 'Escape from Happiness' (Round House), 'Crossing Delancy' (Washington Jewish Theatre) and 'Vicki in Tomorrowland,' a joint production hosted by both Horizons Theatre and Theatre J. Elizabeth’s script writing experience is mostly in "issue oriented" theatre for both GW and Georgetown University's freshman orientation programs. She also adapts children's stories and personal stories from senior citizens for the stage. Elizabeth has directed for Offstage Theatre Company, George Washington University, Imagination Stage, Georgetown University and ETC. Her directing credits at GW include 'An Actors Nightmare', 'Dentity Crisis', 'Chamber Music', 'Acting Xtravaganza', 'Juvenilia', 'The New Plays Festival', 'Little Shop of Horrors' and 'Almost, Maine', 'Dead Man’s Cell Phone', 'Dog Sees God', and 'Speech & Debate'.
