God Of Carnage

2nd January @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm


What happens when two sets of parents meet up to deal with the unruly behaviour of their children? A calm and rational debate between grown-ups about the need to teach their children how to behave properly? Or a hysterical night of name-calling, tantrums and tears before bedtime?

Boys will be boys, but the adults are usually worse – much worse. Prosperous is a small village in Co. Kildare with a strong tradition of theatre and the group are thrilled to have won the RTE All Ireland Drama Finals for the first time in 2018.
