Fawlty Towers – A classic TV comedy favourite

Five decades ago the TV sitcom Fawlty Towers brought an entire nation to its knees, helpless with laughter. It became an instant classic, and now it’s a legend.

John Cleese and Connie Booth, who originally played Basil Fawlty and his wife Sybil, have written a play inspired by the series, adapted for the theatre by Cleese and director Caroline Jay Ranger. Now it’s on stage in celebration of the TV show’s 50th anniversary at the Apollo Theatre in the West End.

Described as ‘an unmissable evening of hilarity’, the production combines three of the best-loved plots from the original series: ‘The Hotel Inspector’ and ‘The Germans’ from the first series, plus ‘Communication Problems’ from the second series. All three episodes have been woven together into one grand plot and given a brand new finale.

The show stars Adam Jackson-Smith as Basil, Anna-Jane Casey as Sybil, Hemi Yeroham as Manuel, Victoria Fox as Polly, and Paul Nicholas as the Major with a total cast of eighteen.

About Fawlty Towers

The original TV series was inspired by a real-life hotel owner called Donald Sinclair, who ran Torquay’s Gleneagles Hotel. Cleese was fascinated by Sinclair, who was startlingly rude to his guests, and came up with the idea for the character of Basil Fawlty as a result. Already staged in Australia, now Cleese’s adaptation is coming to London.
