This award-winning comedy by celebrated British playwright Alan Ayckbourn is part of his trilogy The Norman Conquests, which all take place over the same weekend, at the same house, with the same family. In Table Manners we see what's happening in the dining room between "Norman" and his in-laws as his wife's siblings gather at his mother-in-law's house and complications ensue. Ayckbourn's ability to reveal the absurdity and pathos in contemporary domestic life is unsurpassed. A classic of the contemporary theatre.
