The Norman Conquests

Date: 3 Oct 2018

British writer Alan Ayckbourn’s award-winning trilogy of parallel playsTable Manners, Living Together and Round and Round the Garden – traces the unravelling of Norman and his flailing romantic ambitions from a slightly different, and often simultaneous, perspective.

Famously ingenious, the three plays tell and retell the turbulently entertaining story with increasing nuance and humour as offstage conversations and antics from one play appear onstage in another.

Mark Kilmurry directs all three plays with a cast featuring Danielle Carter, Rachel Gordon, Brian Meegan, Sam O’Sullivan, Yalin Ozucelik and Matilda Ridgeway.
