Presented by Interactive Theatre International

This globetrotting show is truly quite legendary, selling out in places like Edinburgh Fringe and Sydney Opera House. It returns to Gulbenkian in December, but be warned: it will sell out here too, so early booking is essential.

Basil, Sybil and Manuel serve a 3-course meal along with plenty of laughs and audience participation in this 5-star immersive show – a show that’s never the same twice, because it’s 70% improvised. It’s great for comedy and theatre fans, as well as anyone who just fancies going out for an unforgettable meal and a hugely good time. This true blend of ingenious comedy and unique theatrical script is a multi-sensory treat where chaos reigns right from the start.

Born in Australia in 1997, Faulty Towers The Dining Experience is a worldwide hit, performed in around 20 countries a year by 10 teams of actors at the top of their profession. Highlights of 2018 include a string of return visits to Fringe Festivals in Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne and Edinburgh, and tours in Europe, Scandinavia, Asia, Australia and the Caribbean. With an ongoing residency, too, in the heart of London’s theatre land, it’s clear that Faulty Towers The Dining Experience is the most successful interactive comedy show of its kind.

The cast for Gulbenkian features Rebecca Norris (Sybil), David Tremaine (Basil) and Philip Oakland (Manuel).
