News   PHOTO CALL: The Norman Conquests, Ayckbourn Trilogy, Lands on Broadway
Alan Ayckbourn's The Norman Conquests, featuring the original London Old Vic cast, plays Broadway's Circle in the Square Theatre.

Matthew Warchus directs a cast that includes Amelia Bullmore, Jessica Hynes, Stephen Mangan, Ben Miles, Paul Ritter and Amanda Root.

"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."

Here is a look at the Broadway production:
