Round and Round the Garden

Round and Round the Garden is part of The Norman Conquests, a trilogy, by British playwright Sir Alan Ayckbourn. The trilogy follows the romantic exploits of Norman, an assistant librarian, who is both charming and philandering, and who, over the course of one unruly summer weekend, strives to make the women in his life happy. Norman, his wife Ruth, her brother Reg and his wife Sarah, Ruth’s sister Annie, and Tom, Annie’s neighbor, become tangled up in a comedic yet poignant jumble of relationships over the course of the three plays.
