A night at the theatre remains something special. There is a certain magical element to live performance, particularly in the atmospheric space of the Glasgow Tron.
Today’s Big Deal offers a hot ticket for one of the season’s most eagerly-awaited productions, God of Carnage, along with a two course meal from the restaurant’s pre-theatre menu, and a drink to set you up for an enthralling evening.
Savage comedy drama
Yasmine Reza’s God of Carnage picked up the Tony Award for Best Play and the Olivier Award for Best Comedy in 2009. The original New York production featured the late James Gandolfini (aka Tony Soprano), Hope Davis, Marcia Gay Harden and Jeff Daniels in the cast. The play is relevant and universal enough to merit regular revivals.
The Tron describes it as ‘a brutally entertaining and stingingly comic character study of middle class pretence and savage parental instinct.’
Available on five nights, the Big Deal is for a ticket for one person to the God of Carnage, with a two course meal chosen from the pre-theatre menu at the Tron, along with a 125ml glass of house wine, a pint of Staropramen or a soft drink.
Dates and times
The offer is available on the following dates: Wednesday 15th March, Thursday 16th March, Tuesday 21st March, Wednesday 22nd March and Thursday 23rd March.
The play begins at 7.45pm and pre-theatre meal bookings are available at 5.45pm, 6pm and 6.15pm subject to availability.
