When the audience become diners in the ‘Faulty Towers’ restaurant and are served by Basil, Sybil and Manuel, pretty much anything can happen – especially so because only a third of the show is scripted; the rest is improvised around and with the audience. The fun starts as guests wait to be seated, then hurtles along in a tour de force of shambolic service: ‘Laugh till you cry through two riotous hours of food, wine and impeccable comic timing’(The Great Aussie Bite, Sydney Opera House).
Devised and produced by ITI, Faulty Towers The Dining Experience was born in 1997 and has since been seen by over half a million people. It is a fully immersive, highly improvised and site-specific piece of comedy theatre that continues to be acclaimed around the world by audiences and critics alike. The show now has nine teams of cast touring the world virtually non-stop. The show uses its own original script: the TV scripts written by John Cleese and Connie Booth are not used in this production.
‘An experience not to be missed’ City Nomads, Raffles Singapore
‘Completely crazy and very, very funny!’ Mikael Qvist Rørsted, Director, Værket Theatre, Denmark
‘Hilarious… catch it before it leaves’ Best of Toronto, Sony Centre for the Performing Arts
‘If laughter is indeed the best medicine then the show should be sponsored by Medicare.’ InDaily, Adelaide
The Wedding Reception is a 2-hour piece of immersive, interactive and highly improvised comedy theatre that features four award-winning performers in multiple roles, together with a 3-course meal – and maybe even some dancing! Since its world premiere at Brighton Fringe in 2015, it has appeared in Raffles Singapore and around Australia and the UK, picking up 5* reviews along the way.
The basic premise of The Wedding Reception is that the audience are guests at, yes, a wedding reception.
The actors perform around and with the audience, making it a fully immersive experience – and as interactive as individual people want it to be. From arrival, through to seating, eating and dancing, the show is a classic take on an English wedding reception.
The comedy, drama, tensions and fun – and love!
‘Riotous immersive comedy… No shortage of laughs on the menu.’
4* The Stage, Edinburgh Fringe 2016
‘Hilariously funny and completely endearing. The four-strong cast multi-role to the max, providing colour and moments of pure joy between and during a lovely three-course dinner.’
4* The Reviews Hub, Edinburgh Fringe 2016
‘Highly spontaneous with clever improvisations, a witty script and perfect comedy timing.’
5* British Theatre Guide, Edinburgh Fringe 2016

‘Best fringe in the show’ Pamela’s Nan
Pamela’s Palace is an immersive show set in a hair salon with a 1960s aesthetic – but all you need to host the show is a space where the three performers can move around with their hairdressing ‘equipment’ and interact with the audience.

This all-new one-hour special can be tailored to any individual event by the client, whether corporate or private. Featuring Basil, Sybil and Manuel, what could possibly go wrong??
Inspired by Faulty Towers The Dining Experience, this interactive one-hour show is an awards ceremony with a difference. Featuring Basil as master of ceremonies, with Manuel his glamorous assistant and Sybil their diligent manager, the show is full of mishaps and miscommunications as individual guests become part of the production, while other guests enjoy star performances by their friends under Basil Faulty’s ‘guidance’.
Tailor-made to and for private events, it’s as good for parties and celebrations as it is for corporate events.
This show can be adapted for small or large audiences and performed in a huge variety of spaces – all we need is a PA and microphone access. It can be presented as one full hour or three 20-minute set pieces over a period of two hours.
Catering is at the discretion of the client.
This show is organised on a one-to-one basis, so please contact our office to discuss requirements.
