Faulty Towers The Dining Experience

 

Interactive Theatre International presents:

Faulty Towers The Dining Experience

This globetrotting show is truly quite legendary, selling out in places like Edinburgh Fringe and Sydney Opera House. It is returning to Bedford Corn Exchange, but be warned: it will sell out here too, so early booking is essential.

Fully immersive, highly interactive and acclaimed internationally, this is the 5-star show where Basil, Sybil and Manuel serve a 3-course meal alongside a good, strong dollop of mayhem. And it’s 70% improvised, so it’s never the same twice! Great for comedy and theatre fans as well as anyone who fancies an unforgettable meal with a lot of laughs, this show is a truly unique comedy where chaos reigns right from the start.

 

- ‘Hilarious!’ What’s on London

- ‘Outrageously funny’, BroadwayBaby, Edinburgh Fringe

- ‘Fantastic!’ What’s on Stage, Birmingham REP

 

Born in Australia in 1997, Faulty Towers The Dining Experience is a worldwide hit, performed in around 20 countries a year by 10 teams of actors. Highlights of 2018 include a string of return visits to Fringe Festivals in Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne and Edinburgh, and tours in Europe, Scandinavia, Asia, Australia and the Caribbean. With an ongoing residency, too, in the heart of London’s theatre land, it’s clear that Faulty Towers The Dining Experience is the most successful interactive comedy show of its kind.

 

Ten teams of cast now tour the world virtually non-stop.
