Fawlty Towers in London

Don't miss the comedy of the year. If you're a fan of FAWLTY TOWERS, you can't afford to miss this adaptation.

Fifty years ago FAWLTY TOWERS exploded onto our TV screens and made sitcom history. Now the classic comedy has been adapted for the West End by John Cleese, who played Basil Fawlty, and it’s on stage at the Apollo Theatre.

Why You Should See Fawlty Towers

  • If you liked the TV series, you'll adore this stage adaptation which combines three of the best-loved episodes from the original series.
  • The leading cast includes actors Hemi Yeroham, Victoria Fox, Adam Jackson-Fox and Anna-Jane Casey.
  • Endorsed by the creators of the original show (John Cleese and Connie Booth), it is predicted to be the comedy of the year.

Fawlty Towers - The Story

The action takes place in a fictional hotel in the seaside town of Torquay in Devon. Basil and Sybil have been tipped off about a visit by hotel inspectors, who Basil is keen to impress. As he does his awful best to ingratiate himself with the guests he believes are the inspectors, things quickly begin to go downhill. You’ll meet the famous Germans and the guest from hell Mrs Richards, and Basil’s cringe-worthy antics will keep you laughing to the end.

About Fawlty Towers

All the familiar characters are on stage: Basil and his wife Sybil, their assistant Polly, and Manuel the trainee waiter from Barcelona. Cleese himself was involved in the casting, assembling a top-class 18-strong team of talent. The two-hour play is based on three original TV episodes: ‘The Hotel Inspector’ and ‘The Germans’ from series one, and ‘Communication Problems’ from series two, all brought together in a new finale.

Fawlty Towers Cast & Creatives

The show stars Adam Jackson-Smith as Basil, Anna-Jane Casey as Sybil, and Paul Nicholas as the Major. Hemi Yeroham plays Manuel and Victoria Fox plays Polly. Cleese himself and Connie Booth, who played Sybil in the TV series, are the writers, and the fun is directed by Caroline Jay Ranger.

Don't miss out on the opportunity to see this BBC sitcom, which became one of the greatest TV programmes of all time, on stage. FAWLTY TOWERS heads to the West End this spring, so book your tickets today to avoid disappointment.

Rather dated comedy

I would say that this comedy is very much old style which the present day generations wouldn't really understand it. The comedy relating to the Germans should not be included within a comedy play like this as I am sure the present day generations would find offensive and shouldn't be used in present day.

A Fast, Fun, Furious Frolic

True to the original sitcom. Laugh out loud funny. Characters exactly the same as the TV show and just as watchable.

Fawlty Towers

We liked it. It is a farce. But not sure how a younger generation would appreciate that type of humour. It was really well done and extremely slick.Acting was brilliant. We know the stories and jokes well. I think it would travel really well to theatres round the country. I would recommend it.

Best show in town!

Fawlty Towers is a wonderful show, a reincarnation of so many memories, scenes and a script that was faithful to the original, all delivered with superb timing, looks and voices that were uncannily like the originals. Full marks to the actors, the casting got them all off to a ‘T’. It was faultless! One is left wondering how Basil can keep this level of energy up for any length of time! He must be exhausted after one week.

Must see! Just get good seats to enjoy it all.

Loved every minute of it. Funny from the start. My only grievance is we got seats which had some blocked viewing but it's all we could afford. But we stood up as we were up in the gods and we are only short people. Recommendsaving a bit more for better seats to enjoy to the full.

A hilarious show with Basil at his best
