This is your personal invitation to see one of the funniest British comedies ever written, hands down. “The Norman Conquests” by Alan Ayckbourn is a trilogy of plays (trilogies are very rare) that explores the ever-changing and always hilarious relationships of an unforgettable British family of 5 plus a slightly addled friend who happens to be a veterinarian. The setting is a summer weekend at the old family country home outside of London. Norman, a librarian by profession, is a master manipulator who has designs on both his sisters-in-law. Unfortunately for him but fortunately for us, nothing goes according to plan, leading to some of the funniest moments in live theater. 4 years ago it received the Tony award for best revival of a play.
By popular demand and at the urging of much of the original cast, The Royal Larkspur Players will be performing the second part of the trilogy, “Living Together” on Thursday, June 4th at the Community Library, 6 PM.
Let me hasten to add that you NEED NOT have seen the first part of the set of 3 plays; in fact all 3 are self-contained plays within themselves and can be seen in no particular order.
Gary Hoffman, producer/director.
