13th – 16th May 2020
Our next production is "Table Manners" by Alan Ayckbourn.
"Table Manners" is part of a trilogy under the general heading "The Norman Conquests", the other two plays being "Round And Round The Garden" and "Living Together". The plays are not consecutive, but all occur during a single week-end and each takes place in a different part of the same house.
In this play, Annie has arranged to spend an illicit weekend with her sister Ruth's husband Norman, and for this reason, suitably disguised, has asked her elder brother Reg and his wife Sarah to look after their widowed mother and the house. As it happens the seduction, thought or planned, by each of the six characters never takes place either.
The play will be directed by Debi Diacon and rehearsals begin in January.
As usual, we will be holding a Friday Supper and Show performance (Friday 15th May) and a local charity will assist us in organising the evening in return for a share of the profits. We look forward to seeing you!
