One of the most prominent playwrights of her generation, Yasmina Reza has been translated into some thirty-five languages and performed all over the world. She is the first non English-speaking recipient of two Tony awards. The first for “Art”(1994) and the next one for God of Carnage (2006), which also earned her two Olivier awards. She received Molières for Conversations After a Burial (1987) and “Art”, and a César for her film adaptation of God of Carnage. Also a director and actress, Reza is the author of seven works of fiction. Her latest book, Heureux les heureux, consists of twenty monologues involving recurring characters. Pessimistic, ironic and humorous, her works depict, with sharp sarcasm, the ridicule and childishness of adults living in a materialistic world.
