The Wick Theatre Company is set to perform Yasmina Reza’s play God of Carnage.

The play follows the story of four parents who get together to discuss a playground altercation between two small boys which has left one of them with a couple of broken teeth. Veronica and Michael, whose son Henry suffered the damage, welcome Annette and Alan, parents of Benjamin the attacker, into their home, determined to treat the whole situation in a civilised manner. At first all goes smoothly, but as drink starts to flow, and high-powered corporate lawyer Alan answers incessant business calls on his mobile phone, politeness goes out of the window and the couples spar against each other.

Yasmina Reza’s play was a success in the original French language, and it won both the Laurence Olivier Award for best comedy and the Tony Award for best play in 2009.

The performances will run from Wednesday, June 14, to Saturday, June 17, at the Barn Theatre, Southwick Street, Southwick. Curtain up is at 7.45pm. Tickets cost £11 from the Box Office on 01273 597094 or through the website at www.wicktheatre.co.uk.
