THE GOD OF CARNAGE

Perdu Amsterdam, 21-30 November 2019

Written by Yasmina Reza
Directed by Cíntia Taylor
 

The hit comedy OF MANNERS WITHOUT THE MANNERS…


What happens when two seemingly reasonable couples meet to discuss a fight between their children? The God of Carnage zooms in on one evening with Alan, Annette, Veronica and Michael. What starts as a civilised conversation quickly disintegrates as the polite middleclass façade crumbles and the adults find themselves in a chaotic verbal battleground with relationships unraveling and tensions running high. 

The God of Carnage is a comedy about human nature, relationships and our struggle to keep up appearances. Relatable to anyone who has ever tried – and failed – to take the moral high ground, it is a sharp comedy that shines a light on the bad traits we all like to keep hidden. The God of Carnage will make audiences laugh out loud and then cringe at the - bad - behaviour they will no doubt recognize in themselves…

This critically acclaimed play has enjoyed success in the West End and Broadway, and is the winner of an Olivier award for Best Comedy and three Tony Awards. This amsterdam production is supported by the AFK (Amsterdam Fund for the Arts).
