Soham-based theatre group Viva Arts and Community Group will be performing ‘God of Carnage’ as its latest entry to drama festivals around the UK.
God of Carnage is a play by Yasmina Reza about two sets of parents, one of who’s children has hurt the other at the park. The parents meet to discuss the matter. However, as the evening goes on, the parents become increasingly childish, resulting in an evening of chaos.
Sarah Dowd-Crosby, director said: “The group are doing an amazing job. They are an exceptional group of actors that are working so hard to perfect this very intense and emotional show.”
The group are performing at the Wellington Drama Festival this Saturday (November 4) and if they do well they will continue on the road to the regional and national festivals.
Viva was host to a free open rehearsal of the show for friends and family or anyone who wanted to see the group’s progress this Sunday (October 29).
