Summary

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 ids how to behave properly? Or a hysterical night of name-calling, tantrums and tears before bedtime?

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.
