Festival Hosts Faulty Towers Dining Experience

The 2010 Melbourne International Comedy Festival has provided the perfect platform for a hilarious interactive dining comedy show based on the popular Faulty Towers TV Series, perfect for groups and corporate entertaining.

Following a sell-out tour of Europe boasting five-star reviews and standing ovations, Australia’s hit show returns to Melbourne with all the gags and a great meal too.

The Faulty Towers Dining Experience, running during the Melbourne Comedy Festival is ready to entertain groups.

Faulty Towers, The Dining Experience is a loosely-scripted, pitch-perfect ’13th episode’ of the TV series, developing the characters made famous by John Cleese, Prunella Scales and Andrew Sachs.

The show starts as the audience are called to be seated in the restaurant of the Faulty Towers hotel, and it hurtles along for the next two hours as Sybil, Basil and Manuel serve the meal. Basil is manic, Sybil domineering, and Manuel, of course, is hopelessly language-challenged. Everything that can wrong does in some wonderfully controlled chaos. Just don’t mention the war!

Faulty Towers The Dining Experience is a site-specific, ‘total immersion’ piece of interactive comedy theatre performed in a restaurant: the audience are the diners and the cast their warring waiters. It provides two hours of face-aching fun as well as a two- or three-course meal.

Born in Australia in 1997, the show continues to tour Australia and Europe throughout 2010. The theatre event will take place as part of the festival at The Aegean Restaurant, 19 Brunswick Street, Fitzroy, Melbourne.
