Yasmina Reza | Happy are the Happy

Philadelphia Central Library

Cost: $15 General Admission, $7 Students

French playwright, novelist, and screenwriter Yasmina Reza’s work has won international acclaim for holding “the mirror up to bourgeois hypocrisy with the savage indignation of a born satirist” (The Guardian). Her darkly comic and socially prescient plays, including Conversations After a Burial, The Passage of Winter, and The Unexpected Man, have been translated into 35 languages and staged worldwide.

She has twice won the Tony for Best Play, for 1998’s Art and 2009’s God of Carnage. Her other work includes seven novels and a popular memoir. Her new novel, Happy are the Happy, vacillates between cruelty and humor in a study of the elusive and ethereal qualities of love and commitment. 

In conversation with Toby Zinman, theatre critic, Philadelphia Inquirer, professor, University of the Arts.
