God of Carnage Poster


A fight between two eleven-year-old boys leaves one with missing teeth. Afterwards, their parents meet to discuss the incident like adults. Formalities observed at the start of the meeting are quickly forgotten and their own childlike quirks are comically exposed. As tensions rise and the couples’ morals, marriages, and parenting styles are called into question, these Brooklyn parents find themselves switching teams, drinking rum, and calling names.

This Tony Award-winning black comedy will leave you laughing and wondering just who the real children are!

Poster Rumors


What do you do when you are invited to an elegant dinner party at the upper-class home of a high-ranking politician – and arrive to find the host has shot himself and the hostess is missing? Well, if you are a good friend you’ll forget about the buffet and the cocktails and try to cover the whole situation while trying to figure out what actually happened. However, you might just lose your calm when the police suddenly arrive at the scene …
This is the tricky task at hand for the four couples in Neil Simon’s award-winning hysterical comedy-farce.

Pride and Prejudice Poster


Hertfordshire 1813. Mrs Bennet is facing a whole lot of problems: five unmarried daughters, no money to give them when they get married, and a husband who only has a passing interest in her worries. If only she could catch her new – and rich! – neighbour, Mr Bingley, for one of her girls! If only daughter Elizabeth hadn’t acted on her prejudices and convinced Bingley’s proud friend Darcy (who is even richer!) that she is not good enough for him! And if only the rest of the Bennet girls weren’t so bookish, so silly or so easily influenced by unworthy men! She can only hope that in the end love will conquer all.
