Fawlty Towers Live – CANCELLED

21 February 2017–4 March 2017

ITR Auditorium

The World Premiere Tour of Fawlty Towers – Live, that was due to play in New Zealand next February and March, has regrettably been cancelled.

Due to a number of factors, including last week’s significant earthquake which has seen an impact on two of the three tour cities  - Christchurch and Wellington - where Fawlty Towers – Live was due to perform next year, the producers have arrived at the difficult decision not to proceed with the New Zealand tour.

Fawlty Towers – Live was scheduled to perform at the Bruce Mason Centre in Auckland from February 2; the Isaac Theatre Royal Christchurch from February 21 and the St. James Theatre, Wellington from March 7.  Patrons who have purchased tickets may seek a full refund at the original point of purchase.

Fawlty Towers Live is based on the BBC TV series written by John Cleese and Connie Booth. It is adapted for the stage by John Cleese, with direction by Caroline J. Ranger and set design by Liz Ascroft.

Manic, snobbish, condescending and rude, Basil Fawlty is without doubt one of the funniest, most iconic and memorable British comedy characters ever written. This original adaptation will bring all your beloved characters to life onstage in an unmissable evening of hilarity!

Playing the role of Basil is the extraordinary Stephen Hall, who leads an all new Australian cast including, Blazey Best (Sybil), Aimee Horne (Polly) and Syd Brisbane (Manuel). The World Premiere Tour of Fawlty Towers Live on stage is on its way to New Zealand, so come and check in!
