ALAN Ayckbourn’s hilarious play Table Manners comes to The Theatre Chipping Norton on Friday, June 5 and Saturday, June 6.

It depicts the interplay between six characters over a weekend in the dining room as assistant librarian Norman tries to bring happiness to the lives of the three women present at the house with varying results.

Emotional fireworks and hilarious confusion descends on the members of an extended family who simultaneously despise each other and cannot get enough of each other.

An all-star cast including Anna Brecon (Emmerdale), Marcus Hutton (Brookside) and David Callister (The Bill) bring this high paced, classic modern comedy to the stage.

Friday's performance is at 7.45pm and Saturday's at 2.30pm and 7.45pm.

Tickets cost £15 and are available by calling 01608 642350.
