2-4 & 7-11 March 2017 @ 19:00
Tunturikadun Vierailunäyttämö (Puoli-Q)
There are a very small number of limited-view seats available for sold-out performances. If you wish apply for one of these, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Vallons and the Reilles meet up to discuss the altercation that took place between their sons, their hearts full of the art of co-existence. There are tulips, there is clafoutis (is it a cake or a tart?), and emotional cul-de-sacs are to be avoided. There are also missing teeth, the Darfur tragedy and thump guns, not to mention the regrettable fate of the Kokoschka. And then there’s the hamster...
The God of Carnage will make an appearance in March, and it is darkly funny. Don’t miss it.
Featuring Mira Berglund-Fitzpatrick, Marietta Chela, Christian Jull, and Daniel McMullen.
Directed by Joan Nordlund.
Live music during the interval from The Really Small Band.
Adapted by Joan Nordlund from Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night.

Well-deserved success! These were excellent productions! I enjoyed both very much.|
Awesome acts both! Can't wait for plays to come!|
Thank you so much for 'God of Carnage'! Great play, great performance!|
That was a really fun night out. Both performances were brilliant. Thx and I hope you all enjoy the rest of the run as much as I enjoyed last night.|
Thank you for a super performance!|
Congratulations RStC, one and all! You have cause to be proud.|
Fantastic performances: a gilt-edged portrayal of characters in entertaining and often trying circumstances. The aperitif of comedic, accessible Shakespeare left one hungry for more, in all senses. The main course - God of Carnage - was a guilt-edged (sic) portrayal of parents in the face of their offspring's contretemps. The parents are at war within and without. Families, class, wealth, taste, culture are all exposed in Yasmina Reza's play. Roman Polanski liked it so much he filmed it with Kate Winslet, Christof Waltz, Jodie Foster and John C. Reilly playing the roles. I would recommend they go to see the RStC production rather than the RStC-ers rent Polanski's version. It was that good.|
God of Carnage by the RSTC is a gripping and funny play, delivered by very talented actors. We had so much [fun], we kept laughing even after we left the theatre!|
Just great ... I think I lived the similar situations! - Estupendo...cómo en la vida real!|
Very layered and fun to be a fly on the wall. Enjoyed it thoroughly.|
Fantastic pair of plays, superbly put together with excellent acting! Thanks!|
"Malvolio" is just such a hoot you forget it's Shakespeare. "God of Carnage", which follows, starts as a quiet gathering of friends having a civil discussion about the kids and ends as an adult version of an ugly schoolyard brawl. The moral might be that there's a lot of nastiness beneath that thin veneer we call civilization.|
Off Broadway comes to Helsinki. The cast is terrific, it's a great production. Wonderful to see theater in an intimate venue. Hurry up before the last performances sell out.|
