In the “explosively hilarious” (London’s Guardian) third installment of Alan Ayckbourn’s acclaimed trilogy The Norman Conquests, librarian Norman, to whom family members refer as a “badly built haystack,” channels his inner Casanova in fervent attempts to seduce his two sisters-in-law, as well as his estranged wife, during a weekend family gathering.
