When the audience become diners in the 'Faulty Towers' restaurant, pretty much anything can happen - because 70% of the show is improvised. The fun starts as guests wait to be seated. It then hurtles along in a 2-hour tour de force of gags and shambolic service as Basil, Sybil and Manuel serve a 70s-style 3-course meal together with a good dollop of mayhem. Expect the unexpected!
Internationally acclaimed, the show was born in April 1997 as a loving tribute to the BBC's much-loved TV series. Over a million people around the world have seen it since.
As of 2020, 12 teams of cast working from England and Australia tour around 20 countries a year. The show is also into its ninth year in London's West End, where it holds TripAdvisor's Certificate of Excellence.
