God of Carnage

A Bear Pit Theatre Company Production

Yasmina Reza’s black comedy, God of Carnage

What happens when two sets of parents meet up to deal with the unruly behaviour of their children? A calm and rational debate between grown-ups about the need to teach kids how to behave properly? Or a hysterical night of name-calling, tantrums and tears before bedtime?

Seething with social hypocrisy, Yasmina Reza’s sharp-edged black comedy premiered at the Gielgud Theatre, London, in March 2008 and achieved the Laurence Oliver Award for Best Comedy in 2009.
