If you have ever thought it might be quite fun to go to dinner at Torquay’s finest establishment, Fawlty Towers, now is your chance.
The original TV show starred John Cleese as Basil Fawlty, c0-writer Connie Booth as waitress Polly, Prunella Scales as Sybil Fawlty and Andrew Sachs as the poor put-upon Spanish waiter Manuel.
It has stood the test of time and continues to be one of the best loved of all British sitcoms.
Who could forget Basil beating his car with a branch, the talking moose or Basil the rat?
There were only two series made and they were first broadcast in 1975 and 1979 on BBC2.
It has inspired a live tribute show which is called Fawlty Towers – The Dinner Show, which is on at The Castle theatre, Wellingborough, on Saturday, May 31.
The show is performed as you dine as a spectacular tribute to the great 1970s sitcom.
It is a night of interactive comedy where the audience gets to eat a nice meal while experiencing Basil’s infamous hospitality.
This show was first performed in the UK in 1997 and has been going ever since with performances all over the UK as well as in Ireland, mainland Europe and Australia.
The cast of actors from The Laughlines have studied the TV show carefully to perfect all the characters’ mannerisms.
The show includes improvisation and great comedy timing as part of a fast-paced interactive experience while you eat.
Tickets are priced £35 and they can be purchased by calling the box office on 01933 270 007 or online at the Castle’s website at www.thecastle.org.uk.
