Ralph Fiennes, Tamsin Greig, Janet McTeer and Ken Stott will star in God of Carnage, the new play by Yasmina Reza, which will open in London at the Gielgud Theatre on Tuesday 25th March after previews from 7th March. God of Carnage will be designed by Mark Thompson, with lighting by Hugh Vanstone, sound by Simon Baker and music by Gary Yershon. The play, which is translated by Christopher Hampton, will be directed by Matthew Warchus.

God of Carnage tells of what happens when two sets of parents meet up to deal with the unruly behaviour of their children. A calm and rational debate between grown-ups about the need to teach kids how to behave properly? Or a hysterical night of name-calling, tantrums and tears before bedtime? Boys will be boys... but the adults are usually worse... much worse...

God of Carnage will be produced in the West End by David Pugh and Dafydd Rogers and will reunite the entire creative team that staged the smash hit play “Art” in London.

Tickets at the Gielgud Theatre, priced from £12.50 to £47.50, are available from the Gielgud Theatre Box Office on +44 (0)844 482 5130 or at the God of Carnage website.

Performance times will be Mondays to Saturdays at 8.00pm, with Wednesday and Saturday matinees at 3.00pm.
