Round and Round the Garden by Alan Ayckbourn

Date: 2nd July – 5th July 2014

Location : Acton Reynald Hall

Director: Richard Bray

Following the success of last summers performance of ‘Table Manners’ and the spring performance of ‘Living Together’. We have decided to complete the trilogy of simultaneous plays by Alan Ayckbourn known as ‘The Norman Conquests’. They each tell an account of what happened at a country house over one weekend of which ’Round and Round the Garden’ takes place in the garden. Reg and his wife Sarah arrive at the house to take over the care of his invalid mother, so that Annie, his sister can go away for the weekend. Sarah thinks that Annie is meeting up with the local vet ,Tom, but it is in fact the local librarian, Norman, who had ideas about a wild weekend. Finally Ruth, Normans wife, joins the party unexpectedly to cause more confusion.
