Annie – the stay at home spinster sister – leads a dreary existence looking after her sick mother who is confined to bed. Norman, who just happens to be married to Annie’s sister (Ruth), wants to take Annie away for a wicked weekend. Annie’s brother and his wife (Reg and Sarah) show up to look after Mum while Annie’s away, not realising that she is going off with Norman. Throw in a cat traumatised by an overzealous, lovelorn vet (Tom), and you have a comic stew guaranteed to leave you gasping with helpless laughter.
The British Players present Round and Round the Garden, part three of Alan Ayckbourn’s hilarious trilogy, The Norman Conquests. Wit, wordplay, and general confusion run riot in this brilliant comedy, as six people who should know better run round and round a garden full of briars, nettles, and poorly constructed lawn furniture. This is a must-see for lovers of classic British fun and frolic.
Directed by Pauline Griller-Mitchell
Produced by Sigrid Blobel
