God of Carnage

by Yasmina Reza

where and when | cast | team


"Morality decrees we should control our impulses, but sometimes it's good not to control them... You're far more authentic when you're showing yourself in a horrible light."

Two couples meet up to build bridges after their sons get in a playground scrap, but simmering tensions and unresolved conflicts reveal that the parents can be far more juvenile than their children. God of Carnage was written in 2006 by French-Iranian playwright Yasmina Reza and translated into English by Christopher Hampton in 2008. A smash hit on both sides of the Atlantic, it has won both the Olivier Award for Best Comedy and the Tony Award for Best Play.

Please note that this production is not suitable for under-14s.
