Basil is back, Australia! The World Premiere Tour of Fawlty Towers Live on stage arrives at the Playhouse, QPAC on 28 December for 4 weeks only!

Fawlty Towers Live is based on the BBC TV series written by John Cleese and Connie Booth. It is adapted for the stage by John Cleese, with direction by Caroline J. Ranger and set design by Liz Ascroft.

Manic, snobbish, condescending and rude, Basil Fawlty is without doubt one of the funniest, most iconic and memorable British comedy characters ever written. This original adaptation will bring all your beloved characters to life onstage in an unmissable evening of hilarity!

Playing the role of Basil is the extraordinary Stephen Hall, who leads an all new Australian cast including, Blazey Best (Sybil), Aimee Horne (Polly) and Syd Brisbane (Manuel). The World Premiere Tour of Fawlty Towers Live on stage is now touring Australia, so come and check in!

And, whatever you do…Don’t mention the war!
