The play comprises three comedies, taking place at the same time, over the course of a weekend. Each one is set in a different part of the house: 'Table Manners' is set in the dining room, 'Living Together' is in the living room and 'Round and Round the Garden' is in the garden. After being performed in Scarborough, 'The Norman Conquests' had a season in London with a cast that included Tom Courtenay as Norman, Penelope Keith as Sarah, Felicity Kendal as Annie, Michael Gambon as Tom, Bridget Turner as Ruth and Mark Kingston as Reg.
