Round and Round the Garden

Round and Round the Garden

Nov. 5-22, 2015

by Alan Ayckbourn

Assistant librarian Norman channels Casanova in his fervent attempt on making all the women in his life happy during a weekend family gathering. He takes every opportunity to seduce his sister-in-law Annie, charm his brother-in-law’s wife, Sarah, and woo his own ex-wife Ruth – embroiling everyone in the action along the way with both tragic and comic consequences. In equal parts wildly comic and touchingly poignant with disastrously imperfect characters, this wonderful comedy will have you laughing out loud as you recognize the secrets and deceptions that bubble beneath the surface of most family relationships.
