Ayckbourn's Norman Conquests May Be Broadway-Bound

News   Ayckbourn's Norman Conquests May Be Broadway-Bound Alan Ayckbourn's comic trilogy, The Norman Conquests, which recently drew raves at London's Old Vic, may be heading to Broadway, according to the New York Post.

The New York daily reports that the production, which is directed by Matthew Warchus, will likely play Broadway's Circle in the Square Theatre in fall 2009. The Old Vic cast, which includes Stephen Mangan, Jessica Hynes and Ben Miles, will reportedly reprise their work for New York audiences.

The Norman Conquests comprises three plays — Table Manners, Living Together and Round and Round the Garden — which can be seen separately or all on one day of theatre-going.

The action of each play takes place simultaneously, over the same time frame: Saturday evening to Monday morning. The plot(s) revolve around the title character who, believing it his mission in life is to make women happy by showering them with love, makes the most of every opportunity to do so, trying to seduce his sister-in-law Annie, charming his brother-in-law's wife Sarah and wooing his own wife Ruth.

Kevin Spacey is currently the director of the Old Vic.

There has been no official announcement about a Broadway transfer of The Norman Conquests.
