‘Living Together’ is one of three plays collectively called ‘The Norman Conquests’. Each one is a dove-tailed account of events at a country house over one weekend that take place with the same characters in different parts of the estate. This one, ‘Living Together’, shows us what happens in the sitting-room.

The house belongs to an unseen but tyrannical invalid woman whose unattached daughter, Annie, cares for her. On the Saturday evening when the plays start, Annie’s brother Reg and his wife Sarah have just arrived to take over nursing duties so that Annie can go away for the weekend. Reg, one of a number of Ayckbourn men who can never quite remember the names of his own children, probably hasn’t thought about it at all, but Sarah assumes this has been arranged with Tom, the local vet, who has been hanging around Annie as fixedly as her old jumper but failing actually to court her. In fact, the weekend has been arranged with Norman, an assistant librarian, who is prepared to court anybody.
