Fawlty Towers - re-opened!
Back by popular demand following last year's run!
Mr Moose Presents and Everyman Theatre have teamed up again to present theatrical re-enactments of a further three of the original Fawlty Towers television episodes.
Basil is obsessed with the idea of holding a 'gourmet night' to attract a better class of clientele. Having gained some interest with Torquay's great and good (by advertising 'no riff-raff'), an alcoholic chef, a slippery duck and a recalcitrant car all serve to foil his plans.
In a farce of Whitehall proportions a couple of doctors- one a psychiatrist- staying at the hotel are subjected to an in-depth study in mania as Basil tries valiantly to defend himself from compromising situations involving cupboards, ladders and an Australian girl with an interest in yoga.
Featuring a talking Mr Moose. Don't mention the war!

"The improvised reactions were wonderful' he was so naturally Basil. The supporting cast were fantastic too."
