The childish way parents react to the bad behaviour of their kids takes centre stage in Hawera Repertory’s latest show.
Two 11-year-old boys, a stick and some broken teeth are the catalyst for the multi award-winning God of Carnage, a darkly funny play in which all hell breaks loose.
Two families meet to discuss a squabble between their sons, and while the evening begins amicably, it soon dissolves into a deluge of accusations, jealousy and rage.
Directed by Clive Cullen, God of Carnage stars Helen Snook, Ant Jones, Donnella Weir and Ron Scott.
Together the team bring to life this hilarious story of adults behaving like petulant children.
Winner of both a Laurence Olivier Award and a Tony for best play, God of Carnage is written by French playwright Yasmina Reza and is described as a comedy of manners – without the manners.
The hit play has also been made into a film starring Jodie Foster, Kate Winslet, Christoph Waltz, and John C. Reilly.
God of Carnage is on at Repertory House, Collins St, Hawera from March 20 – 28. Tickets are available from the Hawera iSite or via Ticket Rocket.
