The world-renowned French playwright Yasmina Reza (1959), author of numerous stage hits, is already well known to Slovenian audiences. She wrote the play God of Carnage in 2006 and won numerous accolades for it. As in many of her other plays, in this brutal comedy she mercilessly exposes the contemporary bourgeois elite and draws attention to the duplicity of human nature with irony and sarcasm. This witty satire excels in brilliant dialogue and remarkably convincing characters. Yasmina Reza and Roman Polanski adapted the play into a film script, which was made into the 2011 film Carnage with an all-star cast. Yasmina Reza’s play Bella Figura was staged on the Small Stage of Ljubljana City Theatre in 2016.
