PHOTO CALL: Old Vic Cast of Norman Conquests Ready for Broadway

News   PHOTO CALL: Old Vic Cast of Norman Conquests Ready for Broadway The original London cast of The Old Vic's The Norman Conquests are currently in rehearsals for the upcoming Broadway run of the Alan Ayckbourn trilogy.

Matthew Warchus directs a company featuring Amelia Bullmore, Jessica Hynes, Stephen Mangan, Ben Miles, Paul Ritter and Amanda Root. The shows play Circle in the Square Theatre.

"Set in the dining room (Table Manners), living room (Living Together) and garden (Round and Round the Garden) of an English country house," according to show notes, "The Norman Conquests follows six characters – assistant librarian Norman, his wife, in-laws and the local vet – from Saturday night through Monday morning. We watch as desperate lothario Norman (Stephen Mangan) attempts to seduce his sister-in-law Annie (Jessica Hynes), charm his brother-in-law's wife Sarah (Amanda Root) and woo his estranged wife Ruth (Amelia Bullmore), during a disastrously hilarious weekend of eating, drinking and misunderstanding. With his characteristic compassionate humor, Ayckbourn explores the disappointments bubbling beneath the surface as his characters' dreams of love and fulfillment go amiss."
