Best known as the Countess of Grantham, Cora Crawley in Downton Abbey, Elizabeth McGovern stars in God of Carnage at Cambridge Arts Theeatre from February 3-8.

Winner of the Tony Award for Best Play and the Olivier Award for Best New Comedy, this ruthlessly comic study of middle-class parenting is one of the most successful plays in the history of the West End.

When 11-year-old Ferdinand hits 11-year-old Bruno with a stick and knocks out two of his teeth, the enlightened parents meet to talk. But once the drink starts flowing, it is the parents who turn into spoilt brats.

God of Carnage is directed by award-winning director Lindsay Posner who has worked extensively in the West End and at the Royal Court Theatre, Royal Shakespeare Company and National Theatre.

Elizabeth McGovern won an Emmy and a Golden Globe for Cora. She received an Oscar nomination for the film Ragtime.

Shows, 7.45pm with 2.30pm matinees Thursday and Saturday. Tickets are available on: 01223 503333 or
