The Old Vic Theatre Company's production of Alan Ayckbourn's The Norman Conquests will play a 16-week limited engagement at Broadway's Circle in the Square Theatre, with previews beginning April 7, and opening on April 23. Matthew Warchus will direct.

The work comprises three full length plays -- Table Manners, Living Together and Round and Round the Garden, which can be viewed individually or as a trilogy, in any order. The action is simultaneous and each exit in one play turns out to be an entrance in another. The plays will be performed on a rotating schedule during the week and can also be seen in one day on "Trilogy Saturdays."

The revival will feature the original Old Vic cast, which consists of Amelia Bullmore (Ruth), Jessica Hynes (Annie), Stephen Mangan (Norman), Ben Miles (Tom), Paul Ritter (Reg), and Amanda Root (Sarah).

The production is designed by Rob Howell, with lighting by David Howe, music by Gary Yershon, and sound by Simon Baker for Autograph.
