Moat Club present ‘The God of Carnage’ by Yasmina Reza


The play is set in an apartment in Paris. Modern Interior.


Winner of the 2009 Tony Award for Best Play, The God of Carnage relates to an evening in the lives of two couples, residents of a Paris neighbourhood, who meet to discuss a playground incident. Alain and Annette’s son hit Michel and Véronique’s son in the face with a stick, resulting in two broken teeth. The four of them agree to meet and discuss the incident civilly. However, as the evening goes on, and drinks are imbibed the parents become increasingly childish, resulting in the evening devolving into chaos.
