God of Carnage

Author(s): Written by Yasmina Reza, translated by Christopher Hampton Company: Lyric Hammersmith Theatre

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. They say kids will be kids, but the adults are worse—much worse.

Lyric Associate Director Nicholai La Barrie directs Yasmina Reza’s Olivier and Tony Award winning play, translated by Christopher Hampton.
