Tryst is to stage the comedy classic
Fawlty Towers in November.
Fawlty Towers is of course the famous British
sitcom written by John Cleese and Connie Booth, produced by
BBC Television and first broadcast on BBC2 in 1975. Although
only twelve episodes were ever produced, over thirty years
on it's still incredibly popular.
It features the exploits and misadventures of snobbish, manic
hotelier Basil Fawlty, his domineering wife Sybil, the hopeless
but lovable Spanish waiter Manuel, the calm and capable maid
Polly and the steady stream of eccentric and abused guests
who wander through the hotel's front door.
Tryst President Frank Murray said: "Fawlty Towers
is the best-loved bad hotel in the world and its fans insist
it's the best TV sitcom of all time.
"We have decided to do two of the episodes with an interval
in the middle - the very first one which is "A Touch
of Class" and a later one entitled "The Hotel Inspectors".
Both are hilarious and deal with Basil trying - and failing
- to raise the tone of his hotel."
Basil is played by Brian Paterson, Sybil by Carol Clark, Manuel
by Craig Murray, Polly by Rhona Law and Major Gowen by Jim
Allan plus a large cast who portray the guests in both episodes.
It's directed by Alan Clark.
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 or from club members.
