    ABOUT THE SHOW

    Nearly 50 years since it first hit our TV screens, the ‘Greatest British sitcom of all time’ (Radio Times) is now a brand-new stage play, adapted by comedy legend John Cleese and directed by Caroline Jay Ranger.

    Starring Adam Jackson-Smith as the inimitable Basil, Anna-Jane Casey as the iconic Sybil and Paul Nicholas as the bumbling Major, this 18-strong cast take on the iconic characters at Torquay’s most chaotic hotel – Fawlty Towers!

    Featuring your favourite scenes from the sitcom’s unforgettable twelve episodes, this really is the stage comedy event of the year!

    “What a thrill to be bringing Fawlty Towers to the West End for the first time – nearly 50 years since the show was first recorded, in December 1974. We’ve been involved in the casting process for some time, being constantly reminded of what a wealth of acting talent we have in Britain – sorting the very, very, very good from the merely very, very good.

    Finally, we assembled a top-class group of comedy actors who will bring the show to the Apollo Theatre on Shaftesbury Avenue. I’ve adapted three of my favourite episodes for the stage and written one huge finale, which will bring together the endings of all three episodes. So here we are, all the way from Torquay, via the old BBC Television Centre, to the West End!

    I do hope some of you will come to the Apollo to laugh together. And laugh. And laugh………”
