<I>House</I> and <I>Garden</I>

NPR's Julie McCarthy reports from London that the Royal National Theatre is currently presenting a feat never before undertaken. It is staging -- simultaneously -- Alan Ayckbourne's twin plays House and Garden. Actors move back and forth between two theaters, racing from one stage to the other to hit their cues. Audiences, though, can view only one play at a time. Ayckbourne calls the twin farces "a modern morality play."
