Summer Theatre: Living Together

Living Together sees Annie living in the shabby Victorian house where the family was brought up looking after her formidable mother. Reg, her brother, and his wife Sarah come to stay for a week-end so that she may go away for a ‘rest’. The idea is that Annie ought to pair off with Tom.

But for this weekend it is Norman, the raffish assistant librarian husband of Annie’s sister Ruth, with whom she planned to go. They were to meet secretly but Norman turns up early. When Annie calls the whole thing off Norman decides to stay on at the house and gets drunk much to everyone’s annoyance.
