God of Carnage by Yasmina Reza
About the Play
When two sets of parents gather together to sort out who is responsible for one childs attack on the other, mayhem ensues. As a survivor of the politics of playgroup, I can confidently say this is a hilarious exposé of parents behaving far worse than their children over a playground altercation. Under a thinly disguised veil of civility, the parents resort to childish games and toddler-like aggression. This delightful comedy is a must see for anyone who fancies a light-hearted night at the theatre.
God of Carnage is Black Swan State Theatre Companys first co-production with Queensland Theatre Company. Michael Gow, Artistic Director of QTC, acclaimed director and playwright and winner of numerous awards will direct this comedy of manners (or should I say, bad manners?). Kate Cherry
