Publisher's Summary

Winner of the 2009 Tony Award®, God of Carnage is a brash and hilarious exploration of human nature. 

After one 11-year-old is hit by another, their parents meet to find a mature resolution. As the evening wears on, the veneer of civility degenerates. What begins as protective parenting ends as an excuse to let loose the primordial beast buried in each of us. 

Recorded before a live audience at the UCLA James Bridges Theater in June 2016.

Critic Reviews

“A study in the tension between civilized surface and savage instinct, this play is itself a satisfyingly primitive entertainment with an intellectual veneer.” (Ben Brantley, The New York Times)

Brilliant and fast read

Fantastic audio play, some of my favourite actors from stage and screen bringing the stage to life - the question explores are we they only ones that can cause carnage? Or has god created us like this to cause havoc and carnage .. do we form our kids by our own morals and values and how we display them? Should kids have their own autonomy- well in an hour or less you can make up your own mind with God Of Carnage.
