Alan Ayckbourn’s trilogy of comedies The Norman Conquests will open at the Liverpool Playhouse in May. Audiences can enjoy Table Manners, Living Together and Round and Round the Garden individually, although, and of course they’ll say this; “the experience is greatly enriched by seeing all three”.
The plays do not need to be viewed in one sitting or in any particular order, but the theatre hopes audience members will enjoy the challenge and excitement of a trilogy, with opportunities to see all three plays in a day on a number of occasions throughout June — and the Playhouse has come up with a few rather nifty deals to make it as reasonable as possible.
Audiences who choose to see all of plays on a special Trilogy Day will save 15% off the usual ticket price. The theatres will also be able to offer a packed lunch or a range of deals with local restaurants on those days.
Those not wanting to attend a Trilogy Day but still wanting to see all three plays can still save with the flexible pricing, with 10% off ticket prices if they are viewed across a range of performances, and a saving of 5% off 2 shows.
Director Philip Wilson, the former Artistic Director of Salisbury Playhouse, returns to the Liverpool Playhouse having previously directed Noises Off, a Noel Coward Double Bill and Dr Faustus.This is the first Ayckbourn play at the Playhouse since the Season’s Greetings featuring Philip Bretherton and Samantha Giles in 2005.
