Online Stammtisch
Living Together by Alan Ayckbourn
Thursday 4th June, 19:30 via Zoom

PLAY READINGS

This comedy covers a traumatic family weekend in a Victorian country house. The central character is Norman, a disheveled librarian, who is married to Ruth but fancies his sisters-in-law, Annie and Sarah. Annie, in turn, is being courted by Tom, a dim vet, while Sarah is frustrated with her marriage to the boring Reg.

(Living Together is one of the trilogy, The Norman Conquests, three plays that cover a weekend from the vantage point of three different areas: dining room, living room and garden. Living Together covers the action that takes place in the living room.)

Review: "The Norman Conquests – three very British comedies of domestic despair.
Alan Ayckbourn’s trilogy can be seen in any order and is delivered with biting wit that’s always a knife edge away from tragedy." (The Guardian)

To join us you will need to download the Zoom app. You can do this by going to https://zoom.us/signup and registering. It is free to use.

A PDF of the script will be available during the Stammtisch using Zoom's 'screen sharing' option, therefore a tablet or PC would be easier to use rather than a mobile phone.

Our Stammtisch events are not rehearsed readings or performances from the group. Instead, they are casual meetings where we usually sit around a table (currently via video call), and read a script together. Sometimes just for fun, and sometimes to review them as a potential production. You do not need to be a Member to participate, so if you're curious, come and join us!
