Winner of the 2009 Tony Award for Best Play, Yasmina Reza's God of Carnage invites us to an evening get-together of two couples who have agreed to discuss a playground incident between their twelve-year-old children. Alan's and Annette’s son has struck the son of Michael and Veronica in the face with a stick, and the four of them have decided to meet and resolve things amicably like adults. But as the night wears on and drinks are imbibed, the polite veneer breaks down.
This high-energy farce casts a side-long glance at the masks of social courtesy we wear and takes a healthy and hilarious look at the darker stuff lurking beneath. Could it be we aren't as civilized as we think we are?
Directed by Andrew Johnson, this American Theatre Company production will run from 8th to 17th November 2018 at the Warehouse Studio Theatre. Tickets can be purchased here in a few simple steps.
