Three episodes of the classic TV series are brought to life on stage.
WRITTEN BY JOHN CLEESE AND CONNIE BOOTH
BY ARRANGEMENT WITH ORiGiN THEATRICAL,
ON BEHALF OF SAMUEL FRENCH LTD.
Diplomacy is Basil’s middle name as he strives to meet his self-imposed directive, “don’t mention the war,” in The Germans.
How will Basil ever cope with a deaf guest who refuses to turn on her hearing aid in Communication Problems?
And discover Basil’s culinary skills (if he can ever track down the elusive Waldorf) and watch helplessly as he clashes with a formidable American in Waldorf Salad.
Add to the mix Sybil – Basil’s “overbearing” wife; Polly the conscientious University-student housemaid; and Manuel, a waiter whose grasp on the English language would be smoother if he simply grabbed a live tiger by the tail; and you have all the necessary ingredients for a hilarious evening’s entertainment!
Director Alex Gibbs says, “Basil Fawlty is one of the great comic characters of all time. Imagine the owner/manager of a seaside Hotel who loathes the job, the guests and his staff.”
“Then the sheer genius of pairing him with an eager to please waiter with just enough knowledge of English to get himself into a lot of trouble, and you have the basis for one of the funniest shows ever to grace the small screen.”
“And then the cast is brilliantly balanced with the cool common sense of Polly and the gentler sarcasm of Basil’s long suffering wife Sibyl.”
“Only twelve episodes of Fawlty Towers were ever made and so the audience will get to see a quarter of all the shows in one evening.”
“The three episodes have been carefully chosen to feature many of the Fawlty Towers favorite guest characters and give a good flavor of the breadth of the comedy showcased by both series.
