Manuel will show you to your table- if you're lucky
It's hard to believe that Fawlty Towers, the BBC television sitcom, was first broadcast (on BBC2) in 1975 and 1979. Only twelve episodes were made (two series of six episodes). The show was written by John Cleese and his then-wife Connie Booth, both of whom also starred in the show.
The series is set in a fictional hotel called Fawlty Towers, in the seaside town of Torquay, on the "English Riviera". The plots centre rude and tense owner, Basil Fawlty (Cleese), his overbearing wife Sybil (Prunella Scales), relatively normal maid Polly (Booth), and hapless Spanish waiter Manuel (Andrew Sachs), showing their attempts to run the hotel amidst an array of demanding and eccentric guests.
Get ready to be served by Manuel himself, as you dine in style at Grange Cleveland Winery. The fun starts as you, the guests and audience members, wait to be seated. Two hours of immersive, highly improvised comedy theatre ensues, as Basil, Sybil and Manuel serve up some mayhem with a three-course meal while you the audience, plays the part of their restaurant diners.
Enjoy an entertaining evening of organised chaos; bookings required, and will likely sell out.
