FAULTY TOWERS – The Dining Experience 

This globe-trotting show featuring Basil, Sybil and Manuel opened at The Charing Cross Hotel in London’s West End in October 2012, immediately selling out and winning five star reviews. By the end of November, it was top of TimeOut London’s list of Best-Selling West End shows. It continues this year with seven shows a week, every week of the year.
Faulty Towers The Dining Experience starts as the audience waits to be seated. It then hurtles along for two hours of fully immersive, highly improvised and site-specific comedy theatre. With only a third of the show scripted, everything stays fresh as Basil, Sybil and Manuel serve up madcap mayhem and a ‘70s-style three-course meal – all in the Victorian splendour of the four-star Charing Cross Hotel. Internationally acclaimed by audiences and critics alike.

Faulty Towers The Dining Experience is an affectionate homage to Fawlty Towers the TV series written by John Cleese and Connie Booth. Their original TV scripts are not used in Faulty Towers The Dining Experience. Artistic director, Alison Pollard-Mansergh adds:
‘Faulty is spelled that way because when I started this show in 1997, John Cleese was still young enough to have done the role, as were Scales and Sachs. I didn't want people to think they were getting the original, so I spelled it differently. It has nothing to do with being official or unofficial and we work a lot with the BBC.’
- The show has six teams of cast who continue to tour the UK and the world non-stop. It will be appearing in over 20 countries in 2013.
