About the Play

When two sets of parents gather together to sort out who is responsible for one child’s 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 Company’s 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
