Description

A trilogy of full-length comedies (Table Manners, Round and Round the Garden, Living Together) performed in rotating repertory, that focus on the wild antics of Norman and his oddball in-laws. The package includes admission to the following plays:

Table Manners: The events of one weekend as seen from the dining room. In which Reg finds food rather scarce despite having it thrown at him by Sarah … Sarah is scandalized by Annie … Annie is disappointed by men in general and Tom in particular … Tom knocks down Norman … Norman’s romantic proposals are ruined thanks to Ruth … Ruth loses her patience, her temper and her glasses … and in which everyone has trouble deciding where to sit.

Living Together: The events of one weekend as seen from the Sitting Room. In which Reg is driven mad by Tom … Tom tells Annie a thing or two … Annie nearly comes to blows with Sarah … Sarah sees a different side of Norman … Norman sorts things out with Ruth … Ruth discovers the charms of a fireside rug … and in which nobody enjoys playing board games.

Round and Round the Garden: The events of one weekend as seen from the Garden. In which Ruth thoroughly confuses Tom … Tom succeeds in asking Annie … Annie gets a glimpse of Norman’s pajamas … Norman tells Sarah stories by moonlight … Sarah disapproves of Reg’s outdoor sports … and in which everyone gets to roll in the grass.
