Stamford Shoestring Theatre continues its diverse season with Yasmina Reza’s The God of Carnage.
In this excoriating dissection of modern manners, Yasmina Reza, award-winning writer of art reveals the perilously thin veneer that masks our true natures.
Witty and sometimes hilarious, this play about a minor spat in a public park promises a rollercoaster ride of emotions and is often almost too painful to watch.
The stage is set for an explosion as two couples meet to sort out a playground punch-up between their sons. The diplomatic niceties soon begin to unravel as Alain is constantly distracted by work calls, infuriating Annette. The alcohol begins to flow and Véronique and Michel come to realise that their marriage too is in jeopardy.
Performances start at 7.45pm each evening from today (Tuesday) until Saturday.
Tickets are £8 (£7) from Stamford Arts Centre.
