Audio described in-house
Saturday. 5.30pm. The garden. It’s not the only thing that’s looking wild and very, very tangled.
THE NORMAN CONQUESTS is a trilogy of plays by Alan Ayckbourn: Table Manners, Living Together and Round and Round the Garden. This classic trio of interconnecting plays, seen from hilariously differing perspectives, is performed by one ensemble of actors. Each play can be enjoyed as a single performance or seen as one event in any sequence.
An English country house. A summer weekend. A family gathering.
Norman would like to seduce Annie, though he’s married to her sister, Ruth. He’s also got his eye on Sarah, though she’s married to Reg – who is Annie and Ruth’s brother. Tom, from next door, isn’t married to anyone: though he too nurses secret hopes beneath his stoical surface.
With pungent wit and sparkling ingenuity, Alan Ayckbourn fashions the thwarted desires and bittersweet absurdity of family life into a comic masterpiece.
