Dorset Vermont is a town on the northern border of Bennington County, in the Southwestern region of Vermont. Dorset is noted as home to America's oldest marble quarry, and as the birth place of Alcoholics Anonymous co-founder Bill W. The Bill Wilson House and the Griffith Library can be found in East Dorset. Marble from the East Dorset quarry was provided for the New York Public Library Main Branch building in New York City.

Today, Dorset is primarily known as a summer place, with the Dorset Theatre Festival as one of Dorset's most well-known attractions. There is still plenty of activity during the winter, being about 30min to Bromley Mountain and only 15min to the Manchester Designer Outlets.

Table Manners 6/16/16 - 7/2/16

Tony Award winning Table Manners is part of the brilliant British playwright Alan Ayckbourn’s jigsaw-puzzle trilogy called The Norman Conquests, a meditation on loneliness, family and marriage, wrapped in a sweet coating of delicious comedy. In Table Manners, Annie has arranged to spend an illicit weekend with her sister Ruth's husband Norman, and for this reason, suitably disguised, has asked her elder brother Reg and his wife Sarah to look after their widowed mother and the house. As it happens the seduction, thought or planned, by each of the six characters never takes place either. Table Manners, is set in the dining room of the family home where we spend the weekend in the company of these two married couples, whose marriages have long since gone to pieces, and a third couple whose lengthy courtship is going nowhere. Fun ensues!


Table Manners 6/16/16 - 7/2/16

Alan Ayckbourn's jigsaw-puzzle trilogy is produced as part of a historic collaboration with Weston Playhouse and Northern Stages. Wrapped in a sweet coating of delicious comedy, this Tony Award winning play is a meditation on loneliness, family, and marriage. "Norman Conquests, crippling you with laughter that shakes the body and, more subversively, fractures the soul."- New York Times
