The egregious Basil Fawlty is
standing by next week to welcome you to Fawlty Towers
– which has temporarily relocated from Torquay to Grangemouth’s
Bowhouse Community Centre.
Tryst is putting the finishing touches to its production
of the BBC TV comedy classic which audiences still find hilarious
after thirty-five years.
All the characters are featured – the manic Basil,
the domineering Sybil, the hopeless but lovable Manuel, Polly
the sensible maid and the doddery old Major.
Tryst are staging two of the episodes - "A Touch of
Class" and "The Hotel Inspectors". Both are
the TV episodes word for word and deal with Basil trying -
and failing - to raise the tone of his dreadful hotel.
Basil is played by Brian Paterson, Sybil by Carol Clark,
Manuel by Craig Murray, Polly by Rhona Law and The Major by
Jim Allan plus a large cast who portray the many guests in
Tryst's Fawlty Towers double bill will run
in Bowhouse Community Centre, Grangemouth, at 7.45pm on November
14, 15 and 16. Tickets - £7 and £5 (concessions)
- are available from the Tryst Box Office on 01324 715886,
at the door on the night or from club members.
In our picture, Basil is outraged - either by Sybil's unexpected
flatulence or Polly's Hammerite hair-do.
