The Norman Conquests casting and 'in-the-round' staging announced

The cast has been announced for Alan Ayckbourn’s trilogy THE NORMAN CONQUESTS, which – in a first for the Festival Theatre – will be staged 'in-the-round'.

Forming the ensemble company for Blanche McIntyre’s production, which runs from 18 September to 28 October, are Jonathan Broadbent, Trystan Gravelle, Sarah Hadland, John Hollingworth, Hattie Ladbury and Jemima Rooper. Read more about The Norman Conquests Cast and Creatives.

This will be the Festival Theatre’s first ever 'in-the-round' production. A bank of Terrace Seating on what is normally the rear part of stage will allow the play’s action to be seen from all sides. 

The Norman Conquests is a trilogy of interconnecting plays which look at the events of one family weekend from hilariously different viewpoints. Now the audience can match this experience by seeing the plays from a new perspective, too.
