God of Carnage


Yasmina Reza’s Olivier and Tony Award-winning play, translated by Academy Award winning Christopher Hampton. is coming to the  Lyric Hammersmith Theatre in London for a limited run!

They say kids will be kids, but the adults are worse – much worse.

With her sharp corrosive wit Reza rips the thin veneer of civility with heart-pounding honesty. God of Carnage is the unmissable darkly funny roller-coaster you won’t want to end.

What is God of Carnage about?

The other day in the park, 11 year old Ferdinand knocked 11 year old Bruno’s two front teeth out. Their parents meet up to have a civil conversation about the misdemeanours of their children in a suitably calm and rational way… what can go wrong? As night falls chaos ensues with explosive tantrums, name-calling and tears.
