The Phoenix Players presents

Round and Round the Garden by Alan Ayckbourn.

Directed by Daphne Breakspear.

Wednesday 25 to Saturday 28 September 2019 at 7.30pm.

One of Ayckbourn's trilogy The Norman Conquests we are in the garden of an English country house when we encounter Norman, a self-styled lothario who's main intent is to make all the women in his life happy. He attempts to seduce his sister-in-law Annie, charm his brother-in-law's wife Sarah and placate his own wife Ruth - embroiling everyone in the action along the way with both tragic and comic consequences. Norman is finally left disconsolately complaining that nobody loves him. In equal parts wildly comic and touchingly poignant, this wonderful comedy will have you laughing out loud as you recognise the secrets and deceptions that bubble beneath the surface in most family relationships.
