British Farce At Its Finest In Alan Ayckbourn Play
Playwright Alan Ayckbourn's hilarious farce is set to delight audiences new and old as a new production of his award-winning play prepares to tour the UK.

Round and Round the Garden, which comes to the Lichfield Garrick Theatre from February 8 to 10, follows assistant librarian Norman, his in-laws and the local vet over one summer weekend in a Sussex country house.

Round And Round The Garden Sees Ayckbourn At His Best

Norman is intent on making all the women in his life happy by simultaneously attempting to seduce his sister-in-law Annie, charm his brother's wife Sarah and still keep his own wife, Ruth, happy.

But, oblivious to the repercussions of his actions, Norman leaves a trail of havoc, misunderstandings and comedy consequences.

At times wildly comic, and at times poignant Round and Round the Garden brilliantly portrays the complicated relationships amongst these six intertwined characters.

See Round and Round the Garden at the Lichfield Garrick from 8 to 10 February 2016 at 7.30pm.
