The Madrid Players presents God of Carnage. March 10th to 12th.
God of Carnage is ostensibly about a meeting between the parents of two eleven year old boys, one of whom has hit the other in the face with a stick and damaged a tooth. But as time passes the original reason for the meeting appears to have been forgotten, as the couples struggle, but fail, to remain civilized and cracks begin to show in the façade of their marriages. The play has been performed in many countries including Spain in 2008, starring Maribel Verdú, Aitana Sánchez-Gijón, Antonio Molero and Pere Ponce. The American version opened in 2009 on Broadway with an all star cast and ran for 452 performances. Our presentation may be the first time that it has been performed in English in Spain.
