L.A. Theatre Works: The Norman Conquests and Her Big Chance on Saturday 14 July July 9, 2007Posted by William Spear in >> News, >> Radio Drama.
This Saturday, 14 July from 10 pm – midnight on 89.3 KPCC, L.A. Theatre Works’ The Play’s the Thing will air a double bill comedy classic for summer, including Part 1 of Alan Ayckbourn’s “The Norman Conquests”: Table Manners starring Martin Jarvis, Rosalind Ayres, Carolyn Seymour, Ken Danzinger, Jane Leeves and Christopher Neame. A notorious seducer of other men’s wives lays siege to his sister-in-law during a family gathering in the first “battle” of the great British playwright’s celebrated trilogy. (Parts 2 and 3 of the trilogy are scheduled to air over the next two weeks.)
Rounding out the two-hour broadcast is Her Big Chance by Alan Bennett, directed by John Mahoney and starring Glenne Headley as a young actress who takes herself quite seriously – although we doubt that you will.
