John Cleese may have put his irrevocable stamp on the character of Basil Fawlty, the bumbling, ill-tempered proprietor of the BBC's comedy Fawlty Towers, but that hasn't stopped the Lismore Theatre Company from presenting a new series of it.

The Rochdale Theatre, Goonellabah, will host two favourite episodes - Waldorf Salad and The Hotel Inspectors, in a season dedicated to its late director, Brian Best.

It runs from July 27-29 and August 3, 4, 5, 10 and 11, with matinees and evening shows.

Tickets are $20/15, available from Uncle Peters Books, Carrington Street, Lismore.

Rosanna has designs on female taboo

Artist Rosanna Pimm uses 3500 porcelain tampons to created her large scale performance installation  Riots of Passage in The Quad  as part of The Lismore Women's Festival on International Women's Day. Laying down and de-constructing the mandala structure symbolises the impermanence of the menstrual cycle and an end to female inequality in the world.
