Ahead of the its premiere in Sydney on August 19, the first images of the Fawlty Towers – Live On Stage production have been released. A cast that has been hand-picked by Fawlty Towers’ creator John Cleese sees Blazey Best playing the role of Sybil, Syd Brisbane playing Manuel, Aimee Horne playing Holly, and finally, Stephen Hall will be taking on the role of Basil.
The production will be based on the side-splittingly funny Fawlty Towers television series, which originally premiered in 1975 on the BBC, and has been adapted into a live show by John Cleese alongside Caroline J Ranger and Ed Wightman.
Fawlty Towers – Live On Stage will be playing a strictly limited four week season at Sydney’s Rosyln Packer Theatre, before moving onto theatres in Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth and Brisbane. For all event and ticket information, head to the event website.
