“Glorious knock about fun – one of the comedy greats”
The God of Carnage premiered at the Gielgud Theatre, London, in March 2008 and won the Tony Award and Laurence Olivier Award for Best Comedy in 2009. Christopher Hampton’s translation has been praised as a triumph.
The God of Carnage relates an evening in the lives of two couples, who meet to discuss a playground incident between their sons. The four of them agree to discuss the incident civilly, but, as the evening wears on, the cracks show and the polite veneer breaks down. The French entente cordiale collapses and all hell breaks loose.
Yasmina Reza’s God of Carnage is a bitter domestic comedy, in which two couples are reduced to squabbling infants.
