Fawlty Towers

By John Cleese and Connie Booth

Directed by Casey Por

 

The hilarious BBC comedy series came to life on stage last season with a highly successful production by the Vagabond Players. The popularity of Fawlty Towers was so great that many people were not able to get tickets. Now Vagabonds are presenting three new episodes as the final production of the 2013-2014 season.

 

All three segments are guaranteed to have audiences rolling in the aisles. The Germans is a hysterical romp that combines falling moose heads, aborted fire drills, and a group of visitors who Basil Fawlty (Ryan J. Johnson) manages to offend every time he opens his mouth, in spite of his vow not to mention the war. In Gourmet Night, Basil and Sybil Fawlty (Nancy Ebert) attempt to raise the tone of the hotel, but with a drunken chef and a mangled duck, the outcome is predictably disastrous. Waldorf Salad brings a loud and demanding American guest, and the results are side-splitting as Basil prods Manuel (William Valenzuela) along in an attempt to placate the new visitor. Between Basil, his bossy wife Sybil, Polly the chambermaid (Ally Schuurman), and the hapless Spanish waiter Manuel, the opportunity for chaos is inevitable. Add in an assortment of eccentric guests, and the farcical situations are irresistible.
