Robin Herford and Tessa Peake-Jones star in Alan Ayckbourn's award-winning trilogy: "Table Manners, Living Together, " and "Round and Round the Garden." This trilogy has been hailed as a mold-breaking masterpiece. All three plays take place concurrently--so an exit in one becomes an entrance in another--and can be played in any order. The story of the same dreadful weekend is illuminated from three different vantage points: the living room, the sitting room, and the garden. With a distinguished cast including Robin Herford as Norman and Tessa Peake-Jones as Sarah, "The Norman Conquests" is a brilliantly entertaining comedy of our time: wise and witty, funny and profound.
Alan Ayckbourn was born in 1939 and has over sixty plays and productions to his name. Ayckbourn's recent play Things We Do For Love was produced in the West End in 1998 and House/Garden was produced at the Royal National Theatre in 2000.
