The God Of Carnage (2013)

Mar 23rd to 30th 2013

Written by Yasmina Reza

Directed by Helen Withers

What happens when two sets of parents meet up to deal with the unruly behaviour of their children? A calm and rational debate between grown-ups about the need to teach kids how to behave properly? Or a hysterical night of name-calling, tantrums and tears before bedtime?
Boys will be boys, but the adults are usually worse - much worse.
The play is wickedly funny and the dialogue very adept at stripping away social niceties.

"Reza holds the mirror up to bourgeois hypocrisy with the savage indignation of a born satirist", Guardian.
"A triumph! Brilliantly translated by Christopher Hampton", Daily Express.
“I found myself delighted by her incisive observation, her acerbic wit, her shrewd humour .”, Times
