Table Manners is a fast paced farce and one of three plays that form ‘The Norman Conquests’, written in 1973 by Alan Ayckbourn. The play takes place over the course of one weekend in the dining room of a British countryside family home. It’s a wildly comic story about a botched getaway with moments of great poignancy as six sometimes unhappy characters go searching for happy, and not always in the most appropriate ways. As we like to say, there’s a table, but not always manners.

Annie: 35 – 45 – Annie is exhausted. As the youngest of the three siblings (Annie, Reg and Ruth) she’s served as caretaker to their elderly mother and she’s desperate for something, anything, to happen. Oh, and she totally loves Tom and everyone knows it, except Tom…and at times, Annie herself.
Sarah: 35 -50 – Married to Reg, she’s the motherly type, the British ‘stiff upper lip’ motherly type. She keeps the ship running, but she may be on the verge of a break. Leave it to Sarah, she’ll take care of it.
Norman: 35 – 50 – Norman cares about himself and not much else. Perhaps not the most handsome of assistant librarians he can be absolutely trying and brilliantly charming all at the same time. He is incorrigible and would tell you he loves love. Actor needs to be able to fill the room.
Ruth: 35-50 – Sophisticated, intellectual, vain, and nearsighted in a profoundly funny way. She’s married to Norman. Lucky her. But, maybe she deserves it.
