Alan Ayckbourn’s “Table Manners”. The Barn Theatre, Welwyn Garden City.
The philandering and drunken librarian, Norman, creates havoc over a family weekend.
Although this play is thought by many to be the best of the Norman Conquests trilogy, this comedy certainly stands on its own without the audience needing knowledge of the other two plays.
Schools please note: Apart from the special offer of just £5 per seat for school parties, there are also Free-of-charge pre- and post-show talks:
- Wednesday 23rd at 7.30pm in the Clubroom Director Coral Walton discusses the dining room’s window on the Norman Conquests.
- Thursday 24th at 7.30pm in the Clubroom Dr. Cindy Lawford ponders Ayckbourn’s view of middle-class, middle-aged relationships.
- Friday 25th after the performance Cast members stay on stage to answer audience questions
