Winner of the 2009 Tony Award for Best Play and 2009 Olivier Award for Best New Comedy
SLAC opens its 2011/2012 Season with the best of the best in theatre, bringing this Olivier Award and six-time Tony Award winning comedy centered around two sets of upper middle class parents having a cordial meeting in reaction to a neighborhood brawl between their sons. When rum replaces coffee and fragile egos crack, the conversation goes from civilized to savage.
The New York Times describes God of Carnage as "a satisfyingly primitive entertainment with an intellectual veneer".
When parents parent you on parenting, the only thing left standing is the set.
