On Sunday I was invited to an interactive theatre show based on the classic British TV show Fawlty Towers.
I wasn’t sure what to expect, but when we arrived, ordered our drinks long-suffering waiter Manuel was working the crowd offering peanuts from a silver platter and pouring salt into your hand.
Faulty Towers… the dining experience was certainly that. An experience. Think of your worse dining experience: odd or no cutlery, tables served randomly, bread rolls thrown onto your plate, an escaped rat and a screeching hostess… if it wasn’t theatre, it wouldn’t be funny!
Faulty Towers… the dining experience has been performing since 1997 and has toured the world with it unique style and its interaction with the audience. It has performed throughout Australia, South Pacific, South-east Asia and also a sell-out season at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
If you have ever spent an evening watching Fawlty Towers cringing at Basil’s faux pas, Manuel’s antics and Sybil’s attempt at keeping order then this is for you.
Don’t expect a great dining experience, but a chaotic and crazy one – only to be expected when dining with the Fawlty’s!
