God of Carnage toured between March and May 2015
In this comedy of bad manners, when a child hits his playmate with a stick in the local park, can the parents behave like grown-ups?

God of Carnage cast:
Susan Doran - Veronique
Philip Ward - Michel
Julie Nunn - Annette
James Parsons - Alain

Melting Pot regulars will have seen Susan, Philip and Julie in recent productions Hamlet and The Memory of Water. James is a newcomer to Melting Pot - he has most recently been seen in FRED Theatre’s acclaimed A Lasting Sense of Sudden and The Importance of Being Ernest. We’re really excited about having James in the cast for God of Carnage.

If you saw Melting Pot's Hamlet in 2012 then you'll recognise our style - fast-paced, close-up, vivid & exciting, bringing theatre right to the audience. After a bit of time off after the moody Dane, we're doing it again with God of Carnage - the play about two couples who try to deal with things in a civilised and sophisticated manner when their respective offspring get involved in some playground violence. Can they stay calm? The clue may be in the title...
