Faulty Towers The Dining Experience will return to the Edinburgh Fringe in 2022 for its 13th year at the internationally acclaimed theatre festival.
The smash-hit immersive dining experience will take up residence in a brand new venue at the Hilton Edinburgh Carlton. The production, which recently celebrated its twenty-fifth anniversary, first played in Edinburgh in 2008 to rave reviews and sell-out performances.
The company of actors at the Hilton Edinburgh Carlton features David Tremaine and Rebecca Norrisreturning as ‘Basil’ and ‘Sybil’, roles they played in 2018 to critical acclaim. Simon Grujich and Andrew Gruenwill share the role of ‘Manuel’, making their Edinburgh Fringe Festival debuts.
Faulty Towers The Dining Experience will play six days a week from Wednesday through to Monday, with additional matinees on Saturday and Sunday from 5 – 28 August 2022.
A loving tribute to the BBC’s classic TV series, the show has been seen by over a million people worldwide since the very first show at the Ridges Hotel in Brisbane on 24 April 1997.
Faulty Towers The Dining Experience is a tribute to Fawlty Towers, the BBC TV series written by John Cleese and Connie Booth. Their TV scripts are not used in the show which uses its own original scripts and format. A highly interactive experience where 70% of the show is improvised, when diners sit down for their 70’s style 3-course gourmet meal anything can and does happen over the next 2-hours! It’s a tour de force of gags and shambolic service.
For those that can’t make it to Edinburgh, the London production of Faulty Towers The Dining Experience is booking until 18 December 2022 at the President Hotel in the heart of London’s West End.
