God of Carnage
Winner of the Tony Award for Best Play and the Olivier Award for Best New Comedy, this ruthlessly comic study of middle class parenting by the author of Art is one of the most successful plays ever in the history of the West End.
Following an acclaimed run as part of the Theatre Royal’s Summer Season 2018, God of Carnage returns to Bath prior to a West End run. Elizabeth McGovern, fresh from starring in the celebrated Downton Abbey film, reprises her dazzling performance as Veronica, with Nigel Lindsay back as her bluff husband, Michael. Samantha Spiro plays Annette and Simon Paisley Day is Alan.
When eleven-year-old Ferdinand hits eleven-year-old Bruno with a stick in a playground punch-up and knocks out two of his teeth, the combatants’ enlightened parents decide to meet to talk things over civilly. But once the niceties are done with and the drink starts flowing, it is the parents who turn into spoiled brats.
