The Norman Conquests is a set of three plays. Each stands on its own, but all three are set on the same weekend with the same characters, allowing them to become a greater whole. See one, see two, see three. See them in any order.
Round and Round the Garden (as yet the only one I’ve gotten to see) is the third play in the set, also the one of the three that comes first and last chronologically to the weekend. Here’s the set-up:
Annie is a home caregiver to her never seen mother. This weekend sees her planning a weekend get away – a rare thing for her – and her brother Reg set to take over caregiver responsibilities with his wife Sarah. Unbeknownst to Reg and Sarah, Annie’s weekend getaway is a secret rendezvous with the perpetually carefree Norman – who is married to Annie and Reg’s other sister, Ruth.
