Living Together, Round and Round the Garden, and Table Manners make up this trilogy of plays. All occur during a single weekend in different parts of the same house and concern a group of related people. Each is complete in itself and can be played alone, or as a group they can be performed in any order. However, each benefits when produced with the others. A common factor is Norman's inadequate attempts to involve himself in turn with his sister in law, his brother in law's wife and his own wife.

Each play in the collection is also available as a separate acting edition.


REVIEWS

"To write one brilliant comedy is a feat. To write three in a row is a tour de force so exceptional I can only throw my hat in the air and rejoice." - London Daily Telegraph

The first of the trilogy 'The Norman Conquests', full of Ayckbournesque situations - the mismatched couples, the potentially funny moments, but all with his substrata of misery and frustration.  Ayckbourn's always satisfying to do, and an ambitious company could take on the whole trilogy!
