Hello and welcome to the Dedham Players website. The Dedham Players is one of the leading local amateur theatre groups drawing on the Colchester, North Essex and South Suffolk regions. We produce 2 to 3 productions a year and always strive to present an interesting variety of shows and display lots of local talent.
God of Carnage
A comedy of manners...without the manners!
A must see comedy for any couple with children. A black comedy by
Yasmina Reza (Art). Two sets of parents, one of whose child has hurt the
other at a public park, meet to discuss the matter in a civilised manner.
As the evening progresses the parents’ behaviour disintegrates devolving into chaos. The plays English-translated productions won awards in both London (Lawrence Olivier Award) and New York (Tony Awards).
History of God of Carnage....
Christopher Hampton's English translation of the play was first presented in a UK Premiere at the Gielgud Theatre in London's West End on 25 March 2008. This production was directed by Matthew Warchus and starred Ralph Fiennes,
Tamsin Greig, Janet McTeer and Ken Stott. On the opening night of the performance, there was a power failure about an hour into the show. The show therefore had to continue in emergency lighting. The London production was widely acclaimed, receiving the Olivier Award for Best New Play of the year.
