Faulty Towers: The Dining Experience
Interactive Theatre International presents 'Faulty Towers The Dining Experience', running as part of Adelaide Fringe Festival at The Ambassadors Hotel - Balcony from February 12th until March 13th.

Adapted from the 1975 & 1979 television series its a comical interactive theatre show accompanied with great food. It centres around the tense hotel owner Basil Fawlty, his bossy wife Sybil (Dragon) and unfortunate Spanish waiter Manuel who can never do anything right.

The afternoon begins with drinks while Manuel (Andy Foreman) circulates the horderves. Basil (Jordan Edmeades) calls guests in table numbers into The Ambassadors Hotel - Balcony restaurant and Manuel is asked to put rolls on the tables.

He places a basket of rolls in front of one guest and moves on to the next job. Basil tells him "Put the rolls on the plates, roll on plate," Manuel thinks he understands and places the plate on the floor and proceeds to somersault over it.

The show is a continuous laugh of Manuel making harmless mistakes and Basil being told off by Sybil The Dragon (Donna Grey) . When Manuel (Foreman) messes up badly and Basil (Edmeades) fires him, he gets things mixed up once again and informs guests that the building is on fire and orders them to move towards the door.

Make sure to tell Sybil if you're celebrating anything, because the guests that attended on Valentines Day along with a Wedding Anniversary & Birthday got to witness a special singalong

Guests at this interactive restaurant should be prepared for anything and because it's highly improvised, no two shows are ever the same, so expect the unexpected.

The show was accompanied with great food and very good sizes for a fine dining restaurant. The three course meal included soup, meat and vegetables and dessert, but the entertainment was priceless. Highly recommend Faulty Towers The Dining Experience is added to the list of shows worth seeing this fringe season.
