    Details

    Following a tremendous year that included sold-out seasons in Canada, Sydney Opera House and Edinburgh Fringe, Australia’s much feted tribute to the BBC’s best-loved sitcom continues to tour the world.

    Only one third of this two-hour show is scripted, so anything can happen as audiences take their seats in the 'Fawlty Towers' restaurant. Waited upon by Basil, Sybil and Manuel, this is fully immersive, highly improvised and site-specific comedy theatre at its best. Expect all the best gags, shambolic service and a ‘70s style 3-course meal in ‘top end entertainment that will knock you for six’ (What’s on London). Just don’t mention the war!

    Internationally acclaimed by audiences and critics alike. - ‘hilarious, delicious… a Fringe legend’ (The Skinny, Edinburgh Fringe 2013)

    ‘truly an experience… a fantastic evening’ (What’s on Stage, Birmingham Rep 2013)

    ‘so talented – had us in stitches… lots of good feedback from listeners too.’ (BBC Radio Five Live, Pienaar’s Politics, The Lighthouse Poole 2013)

    Faulty Towers The Dining Experience was born in Brisbane in 1997 and made its international debut in 2008 at the Edinburgh Fringe, where it’s sold out every year since. It opened a residency in London’s West End in October 2012 and continues there still. Eight teams of cast now tour the world non-stop.
