Alan Ayckbourn’s delicious comedy of Table Manners comes to Dunstable’s Grove Theatre next month.
Part of the writer’s Norman Conquests trilogy the production, by Talking Scarlet, is a hilarious romp behind the curtains of 1970s suburbia.
Annie plans a naughty weekend with her sister’s husband but time out with Norman is fraught with problems involving the rest of the extended family.
Ayckbourn’s comedy takes place in a dining room over the weekend and depicts the interplay between six characters as assistant librarian Norman tries to bring happiness to the lives of the three women with varying results.
Emotional fireworks and confusion descends on the family who simultaneously despise each other and can’t get enough of each other.
An all-star cast including Anna Brecon (Emmerdale), Marcus Hutton (Brookside) and David Callister (The Bill) bring this high paced, classic modern comedy to the stage.
Table Manners runs at Dunstable’s Grove Theatre from June 25-27.
