Fawlty Towers Tickets

Apollo Theatre

Make a reservation for this hilarious play, based on the ‘70s sitcom. Written by John Cleese & guaranteed to make you cry with laughter!

Check In for Classic Comedy With Fawlty Towers Tickets!

50 years since Torquay’s famously chaotic hotel opened its doors, Fawlty Towers is welcoming guests once again. Adapted by the legendary John Cleese, this West End premiere at the Apollo Theatre features some of the funniest moments from the TV series and all the characters you love, including long-suffering Polly and the bumbling Major. Manuel may know nothing… but we know you should book your tickets fast for this side-splitting new play!

What is the Fawlty Towers play about?

In this hilarious 2-hour show, Basil Fawlty is still wound up by his wife, guests, employees… and life in general! Drawing on iconic moments from three of the television series’ most popular episodes - The Hotel Inspector, The Germans and Communication Problems - the Fawlty Towers play promises a raucous ride through the life of comedy’s most furious hotelier.

The Best TV Moments, Live On Stage

It ran for just twelve episodes, but John Cleese’s ‘70s comic masterpiece remains one of the greatest sitcoms of all time thanks to its brilliant blend of farce and slapstick - and now you can enjoy some of the best bits live on stage. Expect some epic rants and witty one-liners as Basil navigates undercover inspectors (who he may have verbally abused), guests from Germany (who he’s definitely offended) and works out how to hide his gambling winnings from his wife Sybil…

Cast & Creative Team

There is only one man who could bring this classic comedy to the stage, and luckily he was more than happy to oblige! Monty Python legend and original writer and star of Fawlty Towers John Cleese adapted the show into this rib-tickling new play, which first opened in Australia in 2016. Director Caroline Jay Ranger is no newcomer to comedy herself: she directed the hit Only Fools and Horses musical.

An 18-strong cast of top comedy actors brings these larger-than-life characters to the stage, including Adam Jackson-Smith as Basil Fawlty, Anna-Jane Casey as Sybil Fawlty, Hemi Yeroham as Manuel and Victoria Fox as Polly.

Don’t Miss Tickets for Fawlty Towers at the Apollo Theatre

”The greatest British sitcom of all time” (Radio Times) is a very welcome guest in the West End, and one of the top comedy events of the year. We wouldn’t recommend a stay at the hotel, but drop in for an extended stay at the Apollo Theatre and we promise you’ll be laughing all the way home!
