Behind the scenes: God of Carnage at The Mac

Mac_GodofCarnage_Ezine-MOVINGv9Until Feb 21st, Prime Cut Productions and the MAC are premiering God of Carnage, a hilarious social satire directed by Emma Jordan and starring Dan Gordon, Kathy Kiera Clarke, Ali White and Sean Sloan.

This grown-up comedy centres on the story of two sets of parents who meet up to deal with the unruly behaviour of their children in a very civilised manner.  What happens next is open to opinion – 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?

This award-winning play (Tony Award for Best Play 2009; Laurence Olivier Award for Best Comedy 2009) received rave reviews on Broadway and the West End and now comes to Northern Ireland for the first time. Starring a stellar Northern Ireland cast that includes Dan Gordon, Ali White, Kathy Kiera Clarke and Sean Sloan.

If you’ve ever wanted to see what it’s like behind the scenes in preparation for a new play, make sure you check out this clip.

Prime Cut Productions and the MAC were recently nominated by The Stage for one of 2014’s best UK theatre shows for their co-production trilogy of Villa & Discurso and Tejas Verdes. Long-term collaborators, this is their third co-produced show together at the MAC.

We’ll be at the Mac soon to see what all the fuss is about so watch out for a review coming soon!

Tickets are on sale now from themaclive.com .  The show runs until 21 February, exclusively at the MAC.
