John Cleese’s Fawlty Towers – The Play London Tickets

Featuring your favourite scenes from the sitcom’s unforgettable twelve episodes, everyone’s favourite hot-headed hotelier is back! Almost five decades since the comedy classic hit our TV screens a new stage show will be storming into the West End this Spring! Check-in to Fawlty Towers from the 4th May 2024.

What is Fawlty Towers about?

The classic comedy follows Basil Fawlty, a huffy hotelier whose increasingly ludicrous efforts to "raise the tone" of his dilapidated seaside hotel are met with complaints, complications, and chaos. Determined to cater for the guests he thinks he deserves; he routinely berates those who are actually staying in his establishment. Engaging in furious tirades with guests, staff, and his wife Sybil, Basil is anything but the gracious host.

The classic sitcom has earned a legion of fans worldwide and made Torquey the number one holiday hotspot in the 70s. The quick-witted, sarcastic, and seriously silly characters in the show are often quoted today, and all star in John Cleese’s Fawlty Towers – The Play. Put upon Spanish waiter, Manuel, the good-natured general assistant, Polly, and of course, Basil, will be making mayhem in the capital this Spring, bringing joy and tears of laughter to a whole new audience. Don’t miss your chance to see this classic show live!
