Table Manners 

 Synopsis

The story centres around an extended family of two sisters and an older brother an their mates. Annie, the youngest of the tree, still lives at home tending to an elderly, bedridden mother we never see.

The action begins when Sarah and Reg (Annie’s older brother) arrive to give Annie the chance to escape for the weekend for a long needed rest. Fireworks begin almost immediately when Annie tells Sarah she is going away with her sister’s husband Norman. That pretty much sets the tone for the evening: and extended family whose members simultaneously despise each other and can’t get enough of each other.

The central figure is Norman, who needs desperately to be needed – by anyone. It’s almost hard to blame him, too, when you meet his wife, Ruth, a career-obsessed woman with little need for Norman

Rounding out the cast is Tom, the veterinarian neighbour whom everyone assumes is courting Annie (including, to some degree, Tom and Annie, even though the two haven’t ever declares or acted on it).
