'You see…I believe in the god of carnage. He has ruled, uninterruptedly, since the dawn of time.’
"God of Carnage" is a Tony and Olivier award-winning play written by French playwright Yasmina Reza. It follows the story of two sets of parents who come together to discuss a playground fight between their young sons. However, what begins as a civilized conversation quickly devolves into a wild, no-holds-barred argument that exposes each couple's deepest flaws and prejudices.
The play is a witty and scathing commentary on modern society and the facade of civility that we often put up. Through the escalating chaos of the conversation, the characters reveal their true selves and the tensions that exist beneath the surface of everyday life.
"God of Carnage" is a powerful and thought-provoking piece of theatre that will make you laugh, cringe, and perhaps even see yourself reflected in its characters. This is a must-seefor anyone who appreciates sharp writing, complex characters, and a good dose of dark humor.
So come join the chaos and see for yourself why "God of Carnage" is a true theatrical masterpiece.
