He came, he saw, he blundered.
Over one weekend at a country house, family tensions and thwarted lust bubble over in the summer heat. Amid sparring spouses, boring board games and dismal dinners, we join Norman as he struggles manfully to bring peace, calm and happiness to those around him.
The Norman Conquests is an ingenious interlocking trilogy, telling a single story from three vantage points. Each of the three plays – Table Manners, Living Together and Round and Round the Garden – is a full, tragi-comic meal: together they add up to a rich comedic feast.
Perhaps the greatest feat by the world’s most popular playwright, this theatrical treat is directed by Philip Wilson, whose production of Noises Off was a delirious comic delight at the Playhouse in 2007.
“A cultural event that spares the muckiness of a summer festival while providing the instant gratification of a box set marathon, it’s a brilliant idea and a unique opportunity for theatregoers” - Made Up: On Stage Liverpool
