As soon as God of Carnage hit theaters in 2009, it already made a mark as Olivier Award's Best New Play. This is instantly followed by a Tony for Best Play and several acting nominations and awards for the cast. The story itself is pretty simple. It is about two pairs of parents, one of whose child has hurt the other at a public park, who meet to discuss the matter in a civilized manner. However, as the evening goes on, the parents become increasingly childish, resulting in the evening devolving into chaos (Source).
Having had a major league cast from the original London and Broadway productions as well as a Hollywood adaptation starring Oscar winners Jodie Foster, Kate Winslet, Christoph Waltz, and John C. Reilly, it isn't a surprise that the local production has put together the bigwigs of Asian theater. In an anticipated return to local theater, international artist Lea Salonga heads the cast along with the First Lady of Philippine theater, Menchu Lauchenco-Yulo.
God of Carnage will run from July 13 to June 22, 2012 at the Carlor P. Romulo Auditorium at the RCBC Plaza.
