ITI’s debut at Edinburgh Fringe was in 2008, when Faulty Towers The Dining Experience played twice a day throughout August in B’est Restaurant.
We’ve returned with our internationally acclaimed tribute to the BBC TV series every year since, selling out and winning fantastic reviews from audiences and critics alike.
In 2015, we debuted our original show The Wedding Reception, returning in 2016 in The George Hotel and winning yet more 5* reviews.
Come 2017 we’re celebrating our 10th year at the Fringe by moving both shows to The Principal Edinburgh, the 4* hotel in George Street formerly known as The George Hotel. Both will run throughout the month, and Faulty will celebrate especially hard with an additional 11 special anniversary shows.
So much has been written over the years that we thought we’d simply whet your appetite a little with just one 5* review from each year of our Edinburgh Fringe appearances so far…
'Two hours of endless laughter’ The Mumble Theatre
‘5* rollercoaster entertainment’ Broadway Baby
‘I have never had so much fun over dinner… an absolute hoot… a must-see event’ British Theatre Guide
'Outstanding… the most exciting, pacey and disciplined piece of improv theatre to be seen… this improv cannot be improved' FringeReview
‘An absolute corker of an experience’ Five stars, ThreeWeeks
‘A masterpiece of comedic timing that is utterly compelling. Five stars.’ Edinburgh Spotlight
'A two-hour eat, drink and laugh sensation' Daily Telegraph
‘The best show at the Festival… ingenious… the best comedy show I have ever been to.’ Five stars, Sunday Express
2008 – and Faulty’s first ever Edinburgh Fringe review:
'Spot on... utterly delicious entertainment’ Five stars, Edinburgh Evening News
In 2008, the reception to Faulty was so positive, so electric, that it led immediately to continuing venue bookings and tours around the UK and Europe – and in the longer term to bookings in more exotic locations, too, from Barbados to Sri Lanka via Kenya and Canada.
In 2015 and 2016, we repeated that interest and success with The Wedding Reception, and we’re back in 2017.
So we’re inviting all bookers and media to contact us now for tickets.
And audiences, do book now if you’d like to secure seats!
‘Deliciously entertaining. Faulty Towers The Dining Experience is a Fringe legend.’
The Skinny, Edinburgh Fringe
‘Highly talked about and highly recommended, [The Wedding Reception] is a must see… a bursting ray of sunshine.’
The Mumble Theatre, Edinburgh Fringe: The Wedding Reception
The Wedding Reception first played Edinburgh Fringe in 2015 and it became an instant hit, winning heaps of accolades. It followed that up in 2016 and won a mass of 4- and 5-star reviews. It’s back in 2017 with a full season of lunch of dinner shows throughout August.
The show transports audiences to the kind of party most of us have been to… where worry over meeting strangers becomes fully-fledged fun. There’s even a 2-course sit-down meal – with cake for afters!
The show is an original piece devised and scripted by ITI. It features four award-winning actors in multiple roles in an immersive experience that’s as interactive as individual audience members want it to be. It’s appeared in Raffles Singapore and has toured Australia, and now plays in London’s Covent Garden while also touring the UK.
Promoters and bookers wanting to see the show should contact us.
‘Hilariously funny and completely endearing. The four-strong cast multi-role to the max, providing colour and moments of pure joy in between and during a lovely three-course dinner… the epitome of modern wedding satire.’
★★★★ The Reviews Hub, Edinburgh Fringe 2016
‘Comedic timing in a show like this is vital and these actors are experts. Brilliant interactive theatre.’
