In this play, Sarah's desperate attempts to have a nice, civilized week end culminate, not surprisingly, in disaster. Ruth, Norman's wife, is summoned but Norman still contrives to cause havoc involving, finally, all three women. Matters are not helped by such events as the slow thinking Tom mistaking Ruth's intentions during a conversation they have together. Eventually the horrific week end draws to a close. The four visitors depart, but even at the last moment Norman manages, deliberately or not, to wreck all plans by driving his car into Reg's. Back they all troop, now facing having to stay. Norman finds himself spurned by all three women and is left protesting with injured innocence that he only meant to make everyone happy. Round and Round the Garden is part of The Norman Conquests trilogy.

From the Inside Flap:

The third battle of Ayckbourn's celebrated trilogy The Norman Conquests returns us to the same weekend in the country, but this time to the setting of Mother's overgrown English country garden. Something more troublesome than brambles is lurking among the roses. Havoc ensues among the flora and fauna, as this cynical masterpiece makes its way to a hilarious conclusion. An L.A. Theatre Works full cast performance featuring: Rosalind Ayres as Sarah Kenneth Danziger as Reg Martin Jarvis as Norman Jane Leeves as Annie Christopher Neame as Tom Carolyn Seymour as Ruth Original music arranged by Raymond Guarna. Directed by Dennis Erdman. Recorded before a live audience at the DoubleTree Suites, Santa Monica in April of 1997.

From AudioFile:

It could very well be that L.A. Theatre Works can do no wrong. Their audio productions continue to delight audiences with their professional aplomb. LIVING TOGETHER is certainly no exception. This second installment of THE NORMAN CONQUESTS trilogy treats listeners to Alan Ayckbourn's uniquely engaging characters and wry wit. This feat, combined with the British cast's rapid-fire delivery, makes this piece a comedic roller-coaster ride. As usual, LATW supports its fine performances with stellar sound quality and stage-business sound effects that blend effortlessly into the production. If you couldn't see this production live, hearing the recording is a close second! R.A.P. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
