Editor reviews

This second installment of the Norman Conquest trilogy proves without a doubt that Ayckbourn wrote these three loosely connected one-act plays to stand alone and/or be listened to in any order. Living Together is a listening delight all on its own as wonderful British character actors Kenneth Danziger and Christopher Neame as Norman's brother-in-law, Reg, and the dense veterinarian next-door neighbor, Tom, hilariously stumble through the explanation of a new board game Reg has invented. The shaking of the dice and shuffling of cards also illustrates some of the spot-on sound effects used throughout the plays, which add a little color and aural detail to the recordings.

Summary

In the second “battle” of Ayckbourn’s celebrated triology The Norman Conquests, we rejoin the family weekend, this time hearing the events in the living room, where Norman gets drunk on homemade dandelion wine – and all hell breaks loose. Norman unleashes his merry brand of manipulative charm on the hapless guests and even his most formidable opponents go down in defeat on the drawing room rug.

A L.A. Theatre Works full-cast performance featuring Rosalind Ayres as Sarah, Kenneth Danziger as Reg, Martin Jarvis as Norman, Jane Leeves as Annie, Christopher Neame as Tom, and Carolyn Seymour as Ruth.
