But when the doctors mistakenly commit his anxiety-ridden sister, Elwood — and Harvey—slip out of the hospital unbothered, setting off a hilarious whirlwind of confusion and chaos as everyone in town tries to catch a man and his invisible rabbit.

Le Dieu du Carnage (God of Carnage)
By Yasmina Reza

A playground altercation between two eleven-year-old boys brings together two sets of Parisian parents for a meeting to resolve the matter. Alan and Annette’s son hit Michael and Veronica’s son in the face with a stick, resulting in two broken teeth. Diplomatic niceties are observed when the four of them agree to discuss the incident civilly, however as the afternoon wears on, tensions emerge and the gloves come off. Any attempt at having a civilised discussion about whose child is responsible for the fight, and how the parents may have influenced such destructive behaviour, quickly devolves into finger-pointing and name-calling.
