“A savage comedy that tears away the veneer of respectability in modern bourgeois lives” – The Guardian

Written by multi-award-winning French playwright Yasmina Reza (Art, Life x3, The Unexpected Man) and translated by Oscar-winning writer Christopher Hampton (Les Liaisons Dangereuses, Atonement, The Father) comes the Tony award winning show, God of Carnage

Following a physical altercation between their children, couples Véronique and Michel Vallon and Alain and Annette Reille decide to meet to discuss the incident in a civilised and diplomatic manner. When snide remarks are exchanged and their parenting skills brought into question, the polite and well-meaning conversation quickly devolves into an afternoon of chaos and childish behaviour between four immature, pompous and narcissistic individuals.

Written by the incredible Yasmina Reza, and translated by the equally brilliant Christopher Hampton, it premiered in the UK at the Gielgud Theatre in 2008 with a cast of Ralph Fiennes, Tamsin Greig, Ken Stott and Janet McTeer. From what I understand, we have been after this particular play for many years, so it’s an immense privilege to be able to produce it after so long– Director, Charles Douglas,
