Table Manners, which forms part of the famous Norman Conquests trilogy by the revered Scarborough playwright, is bought to the stage by established company Talking Scarlet, and has already been widely praised by critics.

It follows six characters over a weekend as assistant librarian Norman tries to bring happiness to the lives of the three women, with varying results.

You can catch the show at 7.45pm each evening and there’s also a 2.30pm matinee on Saturday.

Tickets range from £16 to £21. find out more by calling the box office on 01438 363200 or visit www.gordon-craig.co.uk.
