9th - 25th March 2017
This event occurred in the past. It is no longer possible to book tickets.
Behaving well gets you nowhere.
When two young boys get into an altercation at a public park, their parents meet to discuss the event in a calm and rational manner…But as the evening progresses (and the rum is drunk), diplomatic civility makes way for all out conflict, leaving liberal principles, expensive flowers and half-digested food in tatters on the floor.
Winner of the Tony Award for Best New Play and Olivier Award for Best Comedy (2009), God of Carnage is a brutally entertaining and stingingly comic character study of middle class pretence and savage parental instinct.
Cast: Colin McCredie, Anita Vettesse, Lorraine McIntosh, Richard Conlon.
