Round & Round The Garden
Brewhouse Theatre Tuesday 8th to Saturday 12st March 2016
Norman is married to Ruth, who is sister to Annie and Reg. Reg is married to Sarah, and Annie isn’t married to anyone, but is friends with Tom, a vet. Annie is, however, planning a naughty weekend in Hastings with her sister’s husband, Norman. Reg and Sarah are coming down to Hold The Fort and look after Mother. Nothing, of course, goes according to plan.
The Taunton Thespians have been fortunate enough to secure one of the few weeks available in the legendary Chiswick and Mortlake Players’ revival of Alan Ayckbourn’s Round and Round the Garden, first performed in the suburbs of London as part of the Norman Conquests’ Silver Anniversary Tour in 1998. Eighteen years on, their portrayal of this wonderful comedy, rooted firmly in the compost rich soil of mid-70s sitcom humour, is just as robust and funny as ever. These six wonderful actors have grown up with Norman, as it were, and audiences are in for a treat.
Alan Coles, Lorna Evans, Clare Fidler, Brian Lewis, Nikki Court and Rob Smith will storm the Brewhouse stage from 8th to 12th March, finishing their whirlwind week with a West End Gala Night on Saturday 12th March. Patrons can anticipate all the glamour and glitz of a London opening night – the celebrities, the dresses, the buzz in the foyer, the flashing cameras and the red carpet – so ensure you purchase your tickets well in advance!
Ticket prices are: £10 on Tuesday 8th and the Saturday matinée on 12th, £14 on Wednesday to Friday (9th-11th) and £17.50 for the West End Gala Night on Saturday 12th March, which will include a souvenir programme (to be signed by the cast at the end of the performance) and a glass of wine. Our usual concession price of £5 will apply to all performances except the West End Gala Night.
