God of Carnage image

They say kids will be kids, but the adults are worse – much worse.
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. 
Lyric Associate Director Nicholai La Barrie directs Yasmina Reza’s Olivier and Tony Award-winning play, translated by Academy Award winning Christopher Hampton.
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.
