For the love of Carnage

First published in News

MOULTON Drama Group is preparing for its performance of God of Carnage, a savage comedy of bad manners, in February.

Originally written in French by Paris based Playwright Yasmina Reza, it was then translated to English by Christopher Hampton.

Director Peter Collins, who saw the first night performance of the English translation in 2008, said he cannot wait to bring the story to life.

“When it was released for amateur drama groups I had to grab it with both hands. Although the play I saw in London would be a tough act to follow, I just knew this play would go down well and entertain our audience in Moulton.”

The play follows two families, who meet after their sons get into a fight resulting in one of them losing their front teeth.

“It all starts off politely, though a little awkward, but as the play progresses, it degenerates into irrational arguments and heated discussions,” said Peter.

“Throw in some mobile phone abuse, what happens to the hamster and the controversial drug Antril and there is something for everyone.

“This is eighty minutes of non-stop entertainment showing us that no matter how badly our children behave, we are capable of behaving much much worse.”

Rehearsals are currently underway for the play, which runs from February 19 to 23, and you too can get involved by contacting Peter on 01606 860124.
