Fawlty Towers


From the popular TV series, the spring production is the classic 1970’s BBC sitcom Fawlty Towers written by John Clees and Connie Booth.

First Time Producer Nick Boxall assisted by Jan Sadler, recreates three ½ hour episodes on the nightly performances:
Communication Problems, Waldorf salad and The Germans.

This production has proved popular with the cast and along side the hard work at rehearsals, there has been a lot of fun recreating the strong characters in this script. An evening at the Angel Hotel Petworth provided some fantastic publicity shots taken by Rob Sadler.
