Description - The God of Carnage by Yasmina Reza

What happens when two sets of parents meet up to deal with the unruly behaviour of their children? A calm and rational debate between grown-ups about the need to teach kids how to behave properly? Or a hysterical night of name-calling, tantrums and tears before bedtime? Boys will be boys, but the adults are usually worse - much worse. Christopher Hampton's translation of Yasmina Reza's sharp-edged new play "The God of Carnage" premiered at the Gielgud Theatre, London, in March 2008. Christopher Hampton has translated five plays by Yasmina Reza: "Art", "The Unexpected Man", "Conversations after a Burial", "Life x 3" and "The God of Carnage".
