The Shropshire Drama Company’s forthcoming production of Alan Ayckbourn’s comedy ‘Round and Round the Garden’ will be performed at Theatre Severn, from Wednesday 6 to Saturday 9 November at 7pm. It is one of the three plays that make up Ayckbourn’s famous Norman Conquests Trilogy.
Set over a weekend in July, the play centers on Annie who has arranged to go away for a respite break from looking after her bedridden mother. In order to facilitate this, her brother and his wife have agreed to take over the task during her absence. However, the question that intrigues them is whether Annie is going away solo or with a companion, possibly the local vet Tom who seems to be a regular caller. Chaos and hilarity ensue as Annie’s plans unravel, resulting in a memorable few days together… but for all the wrong reasons.
Tickets are £16.50; for more details call 01743 281281 or visit theatresevern.co.uk.
