Fawlty theatre with Basil and co

Fawlty Towers is a masterpiece of television comedy. There were only 12 episodes written by John Cleese and Connie Booth but the quality of the comedy ensured that they have been repeated many times on TV screens around the world.

Now the Lismore Theatre Company has adapted two of the episodes for live theatre (A Touch of Class and Communication Problem) so audiences an see Basil abusing some guests and fawning over others. You can enjoy his battles with his wife Sybil and the bumbling Manuel.

Fawlty Towers opens at the Rochdale Theatre in Goonellabah on Friday, March 12, at 8pm and runs for nine performances, March 13 (sold out), 19, 20 and 21 (5pm), 25, 26 and 27 at 8pm.

Tickets are $20/15 and available in Lismore from Kay’s Second-hand Sheet Music and Uncle Peter’s Books (Carrington Street).

Tickets are selling fast so don’t rely on door sales.
