Publisher's Summary

Robin Herford and Tessa Peake-Jones star in Alan Ayckbourn’s award-winning trilogy: Table Manners, Living Together, and Round and Round the Garden.

When the deviously amorous Norman plans a clandestine weekend away with his sister-in-law, he has some fun and games in mind. But not quite the fun and games that he gets....

Ayckbourn’s trilogy has been hailed as a mould-breaking masterpiece. All three plays take place concurrently so an exit in one becomes an entrance in another and can be played in any order. The story of the same dreadful weekend is illuminated from three different vantage points: the dining room, the sitting room, and the garden.

With a distinguished cast, including Robin Herford as Norman and Tessa Peake-Jones as Sarah, The Norman Conquests is a brilliantly entertaining comedy of our time: wise and witty, funny and profound.

The Classic Radio Theatre range presents notable radio productions of much-loved plays by some of the most renowned playwrights, and starring some of our finest actors.

Banal

A real kitchen sink drama. Well acted conversations about nothing of any importance. Great to listen to while you prepare dinner.
