Tryst To Stage Fawlty Towers
"Me Basil, you Manuel, this slap on head."

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. - Tryst Theatre is a registered Scottish charity, No SC003303
