God of Carnage

August 17-21 & 25-27, 2023

Before the play begins, two 11-year-old children – Ferdinand and Bruno- get involved in an argument because Ferdinand refuses to let the Bruno join his ‘gang’ and knocks out two of Bruno’s teeth with a stick. That night, the parents of both children meet to discuss the matter. Ferdinand’s father is a lawyer who is never off his mobile phone. Ferdinand’s mother is in “wealth management” (her husband’s wealth, to be precise), and consistently wears good shoes. Bruno’s father is a self-made wholesaler with an unwell mother. His mother is writing a book about Darfur. As the evening goes on, the meeting degenerates into the four getting into irrational arguments, and their discussion falls into the loaded topics of sexismracial prejudice and homophobia.

Winner: The 2009 Tony Award for Best Play; The 2009 Laurence Olivier Award for Best Comedy.
