FAULTY TOWERS THE DINING EXPERIENCE ANNOUNCES FIRST EVER SCOTTISH NATIONAL TOUR THIS AUTUMN

FAULTY TOWERS THE DINING EXPERIENCE ANNOUNCES FIRST EVER SCOTTISH NATIONAL TOUR THIS AUTUMN

Faulty Towers The Dining Experience debuted in 1997 and first came to the Fringe in 2008. In 2019 in Edinburgh, the experience welcomed their one millionth diner and were hailed by the Edinburgh Evening News as “one of the most successful ever at the Edinburgh Fringe”. 

Now Scottish audiences will be able to enjoy Basil’s antics again as, Artistic Director Alison Pollard-Mansergh, producer Jared Harford, and the whole team at Interactive Theatre International announce their first ever Scottish tour.

The critically acclaimed international immersive dining phenomenon that recently celebrated its fifteenth year in the UK and more than twenty five years worldwide, will visit Edinburgh’s Scotsman Hotel (09 – 13 Oct & 30 Oct – 03 Nov) , Palm Court Aberdeen (17 – 20 Nov) , The Vic St Andrews (22 & 23 Nov) , Forgan’s Broughty Ferry in Dundee (24 – 27 Nov) , Arta Glasgow (07 – 10 & 13 -17 Nov)   and Old Course Hotel St Andrews ( 12 Nov) .

Cast for the Scottish tour includes Jack Baldwin (Edinburgh opening, Aberdeen, St Andrews, Dundee) and Dave Tremaine (Edinburgh closing, Glasgow) as Basil, Rebecca Norris as Sybil and Simon Grujich as Manuel.

When the audience become diners in the ‘Faulty Towers’ restaurant, pretty much anything can happen – because 70% of the show is improvised. The fun starts as guests wait to be seated. It then hurtles along in a 2-hour tour de force of gags and shambolic service as Basil, Sybil and Manuel serve you up a feast.

 

Expect the unexpected!

 

Producer Jared Harford said, “Scotland has given the world many pillars of excellence – Fringe Festivals, Golf, and of course Faulty Towers The Dining Experience. We absolutely owe our success as a show to this wonderful country, and we’re so excited to be doing our first large tour of Scotland.”
