In this play, Annie has arranged to spend an illicit weekend with her sister Ruth's husband Norman, and for this reason, suitably disguised, has asked her elder brother Reg and his wife Sarah to look after their widowed mother and the house. As it happens the seduction, thought or planned, by each of the six characters never takes place either.
Table Manners is part of The Norman Conquests trilogy.
"Superb comic trilogy. Mr. Ayckbourn is the most remarkable British dramatist to have emerged since Harold Pinter." - London Sunday Times
Table Manners premiered at the Library Theatre Co. in Scarborough in June 1973 under the direction of Eric Thompson.
