Edinburgh Festival Fringe: Faulty Towers The Dining Experience: Interactive Theatre International
This critically acclaimed show continues to win five-star reviews and standing ovations.
This pitch perfect tribute to Fawlty Towers starts as the audience waits to be seated 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 three-course meal 70s-style three course meal, with the audience playing the part of their restaurant diners. Just don’t mention the war!
Faulty Towers The Dining Experience is an affectionate homage to Fawlty Towers the TV series. The original TV scripts are not used. The performers are impersonators only, and have no connection to John Cleese, Connie Booth or the BBC.
Ticket price includes a three course meal with coffee and two hour interactive show.
Interactive Theatre International is a Professional Theatre Company based in Brisbane, Australia, and founded in 1997. Interactive Theatre as a concept removes the boundaries normally associated with theatrical performance: they are not limited to the traditional stage of mainhouse theatre; and whilst some scripting is involved, a great deal of the performance is improvised, bouncing off ideas offered by audience members.
Faulty Towers The Dining Experience was born in 1997. Since then, it has developed hugely, especially to take into account the many overseas territories and cast members it now includes. Faulty Towers The Dining Experience is now performed in 20+ countries a year.
Watch out for more productions by ITI, like The Wedding Reception – which won 5* reviews in its debut performances in 2015 at Edinburgh Fringe, Brighton Fringe and in London’s Covent Garden.
