This Pulitzer Prize-winning classic of the American stage is at once funny and horrific and thought by many to represent Sam Shepard at his finest. Mae is hiding out at an old motel in the Southwest. Eddie, her old flame and childhood friend, shows up and threatens to metaphorically and literally drag her back into the life from which she's fled. Their battle plays out as they trade barbs, heartbreak and painful revelations, taking themselves and audiences on an unforgettable journey that demonstrates what happens when love and attraction cross the line to obsession.

This is a fun trilogy of plays about a near-farcical weekend of confused and thwarted romance. The plays occur in the same time frame, but each play is in a different setting (Garden, living room, dining room). Seeing all three enriches the...continued
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.
