God of Carnage by Yasmina Reza at the Pump House Theatre, Watford on 10th – 15th June
“Sticks and stones can break my bones…” but when Benjamin hits Henry at a nearby park, it starts two sets of parents on a comically explosive downhill slide destined for debauchery. In this universally acclaimed, and award winning comedy, by the author of Art, two sets of adults come together for a civilized afternoon of coffee, cake, and conversation about their kids.
But frayed nerves soon surface and the grown-ups begin to outdo their pugnacious children in bad behaviour and moral corruption, disproving the notion that “words can never hurt me.” God of Carnage is a hilariously harrowing look at the minefield of modern marriage. A comedy of manners…without manners.
