God In Ruins imageAnthony Neilson’s new play, created with an ensemble of 11 male actors from the RSC, is macabre, funny and seasonally disturbing, with elements of Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. Touching on themes including online technology, family relationships and virtual worlds like Second Life, at the heart of the play lies a human story about a father trying to communicate with his daughter.  

Neilson’s most recent London show was The Wonderful World Of Dissocia, presented at the Royal Court in March 2007.
