AMERICAN CONSERVATORY THEATER
Round & Round the Garden
The Third Installment in Alan Ayckbourn’s acclaimed trilogy The Norman Conquests, portrays the title character, Norman as he fervently attempts to seduce his two sisters-in-law and estranged wife. The play features the lives of these very unhappy people in this gleefully torrid, sex farce comedy.
A flighty bee attempts to procure honey from various flowers, all set to the music of Flight of the Bumblebee. Norman’s own endeavors and failures are a perfect melding to the absurdity and drama of the music and adventures of an intrepid little insect. Elements from the animation are subtly inspired by the 1978 BBC TV series titles.
