Everyone has heard of and watched Fawlty Towers, the hilarious TV comedy series from the 1970s. The setting was the fictional and utterly chaotic hotel Fawlty Towers in the seaside town of Torquay on the ‘English Riviera’ run by the maniacal and neurotic Basil Fawlty with a little help from his much smarter wife Sybil!

Company Theatre is staging three of the episodes – The Hotel Inspectors, Communication Problems and The Germans using the original scripts of this legendary TV series.

The Hotel Inspectors - Basil is terrified by news that hotel inspectors are in the area – and well he might be! The awful probability occurs to him that the eccentric guest to whom he has been so appallingly offensive may be one of the officials. His ranting turns to a pathetic fawning but has he got the right man?

Communication Problems - It’s not a wise man who entrusts his furtive winnings on the horses to an absent-minded geriatric Major, but Basil was never known for that quality. Parting with those ill-gotten gains was Basil’s first mistake, his second was to tangle with the intermittently deaf Mrs Richards... who will crack first!?

The Germans - Sybil is in hospital for her ingrowing toe-nail. “Perhaps they’ll have it mounted for me”, mutters Basil as he tries to cope during her absence. The fire-drill ends in chaos with Basil knocked out by the moose’s head in the lobby. The deranged host then encounters the Germans and tells them the ‘truth’ about their Fatherland.
