The God of Carnage

12th-14th August

***** - 'This production sparkles at every level.'

'Director Charles Douglas delicately paces the conversation with awkward, initial pauses speeding up to beautifully timed exchanges, full of ironic bile.' - Sardines Magazine. 

'Highly recommended.'

'Ably directed by Charles Douglas, the quartet of actors charged with this material did a sterling job.' - Mark Aspen Reviews. 

"How many parents standing up for their children become infantile themselves?"

When the well-to-do parents of two children meet to discuss a violent playground incident, they agree to talk civilly about the matter. But as the drinks pour, polite discussion gradually degenerates into havoc. In a desperate attempt to defend their children, tribalism takes full force, spiralling to a crescendo of chaos.  If you thought that tantrums were just for kids, then think again…

Yasmina Reza's famous The God of Carnage will take place at The Questors Theatre this August.
