Round and Round the Garden

Programme for Round and Round the Garden

Written by Alan Ayckbourn

Staged by Hook Players in 2010

Directed by Chris Hoult

Produced by Jackie Hayward

Stage managed by Brian Starman

'Round and Round the Garden', one of the Norman Conquests, features Sarah and Reg arriving to relieve housebound Annie for the weekend. Sarah, who is hysterically obsessive, is horrified to discover that Annie plans to spend her weekend away with Norman in, of all places, East Grinstead. Well it was the summer and Hastings was full! Norman is the assistant librarian husband of Annie's sister Ruth, who believes he is away at a conference. Sarah tries to send Norman home and turn Annie towards Tom - the local dim vet - with hilarious consequences.
