Hit comedy, God Of Carnage, returns to the Theatre Royal Bath next week as part of its acclaimed 10th anniversary tour.

This ruthless comedy about middle-class parenting is winner of the Olivier Award for Best New Comedy and is one of the most successful plays ever in the history of the West End.

This new tour stars Elizabeth McGovern (Downton Abbey) and Samantha Spiro (Game of Thrones) and returns to Bath as part of a 2020 UK tour prior to a West End transfer.

The farce sees 11-year-old Ferdinand hit 11-year-old Bruno with a stick in a playground punch-up, knocking out two of his teeth. The combatants' enlightened parents decide to meet to talk things over civilly, but once the niceties are done with and the drink starts flowing, it is the parents who turn into spoiled brats.

God of Carnage runs from January 20 to 25.
