Following an altercation between their 11-year-old sons in Cobble Hill Park, Annette and Alan Raleigh agree to meet Veronica and Michael Novak to discuss the situation civilly – practice the art of co-existence rather than slaughter each other with insurance claims and lawsuits. However, the veneer of polite society soon falls away as the couples begin to regress to childish accusations, bullying and bickering in this action-packed, knockout comedy, which won the 2009 Tony Award for Best Play and 2009 Olivier Award for Best New Comedy.
