Tyler Costigan and Tricia Hobbs visit the TV5 studios to share the details of how you can attend their season-opening show, Table Manners.

"Table Manners" by Alan Ayckbourn and directed by Tricia A. Hobbs.

The first of three plays in Ayckbourn's "The Norman Conquests" trilogy, "Table Manners" takes place around the dining room table in the family home.

Annie still lives at home with her elderly, invalid mother, but she is a woman with a plan: Avoid her sort-of boyfriend Tom and dash out of town with her sister's husband, the irascible but charming Norman.

Annie asks her unsuspecting elder brother Reg and his wife Sarah to look after their widowed mother and the house while she is away, but when they arrive, her plan is soon discovered.

Once Tom arrives, followed by Norman, and finally Norman's wife Ruth, the stage is set for a dysfunctional family weekend. Too much tension, too much alcohol, and too little food make for a combustible and hysterical mix!

"Table Manners will be performed at the Cyrus Pavilion Theatre on the University of Maine Campus in Orono, Maine. Show dates will be June 15 & 16 and June 22 & 23 at 7pm, with matinee performances on Sunday June 17 and June 24 at 2pm.

Tickets are $15 and will be available at the door (cash only), or may be purchased in advance online through Brown Paper Tickets at
