The God of Carnage

A Chaotic Comedy by Yasmina Reza, translated by Christopher Hampton

29th April – 4thMay 2019

“Morally, you're supposed to overcome your impulses, but there are times you don't want to overcome them.”

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. Incisive observations, acerbic wit and shrewd humour abound in this sharp-edged play.
