THE GOD OF CARNAGE - ACTORS ANONYMOUS - TRAILER

 

Performed by Actors Anonymous
Written by Yasmina Reza | Translated by Christopher Hampton | Directed by Cíntia Taylor
 
Actors Anonymous presents the Amsterdam premiere of: THE GOD OF CARNAGE.
A comedy of manners without the manners…
 
Perdu, Amsterdam, November 21, 23, 27, 28 & 30, 2019
 
What happens when two seemingly reasonable couples meet to discuss a fight between their children?
THE GOD OF CARNAGE zooms in on one evening with Alan, Annette, Veronica and Michael. What starts as a civilised conversation quickly disintegrates as the polite middleclass façade crumbles and the adults find themselves in a chaotic verbal battleground with relationships unraveling and tensions running high. THE GOD OF CARNAGE is a comedy about human nature, relationships and our struggle to keep up appearances. Relatable to anyone who has ever tried – and failed – to take the moral high ground, THE GOD OF CARNAGE is a sharp comedy that shines a light on the bad traits we all like to keep hidden. This critically acclaimed play has enjoyed success in the West End and Broadway, and is the winner of an Olivier award for Best Comedy and three Tony Awards.
THE GOD OF CARNAGE will make audiences laugh out loud and then cringe at the – bad – behaviour they will no doubt recognize in themselves…
