FAULTY TOWERS

Want to get lost in an evening of mayhem and chaos and leave thinking that maybe your own relationships are not that bad after all.  Let us bring Basil, Sybil and Manuel to life for you. These three characters will give you side splitting humour as they skilfully bring you into their crazy personal lives, add some riveting dance moves from Basil, Sybil and Manuel, spice it up with their improvisation from quirky, cheeky and just plain fun conversations and weave it into a show personalised for any occasion. The only thing we cannot guarantee is that you will not catch their superbug Fitsalaughter. For some great action photos visit our photos page.

MURDER AT HOTEL BALLE BALLE

Imagine it is 1920 and you have the egocentric Roydon Lambsey and Francesca Lambsey (fondly called Franny) who have brought a lot of India back to England by opening their infamous Hotel Balle Balle.  They have also brought with them Mercedes Bigg who worked at the extravagant Bukhara in India…and boy do they love anything Indian.  Then we have Boy Simmons who is the hired help who works a bit in the kitchen and bit serving.  He said he has worked all his life around food but something just does not seem to stack up…and we are not talking about pancakes!  But then it does make it so hard to work when Roydon is so bad tempered that nobody wants to join him in the kitchen, not even his wife who tries to hide her disappointment about her relationship behind a bottle and a good laugh.  And how does she really feel about Mercedes? And is Mercedes interested in reciprocating or is he trying to protect Roydon, maybe he has feelings for his old friend, in the end he falls back into his old pattern of keeping the restaurant oh so perfect….  Then there is the murder!

Come along dressed in your favourite 1920s sparkles or spats or dare yourself to embrace the Bollywood within.  Do not forget your favourite murder weapon from cluedo or what you have always dreamed of using to get rid of the mother-in-law and become part of the craziness.   Murder at Hotel Balle Balle, see you there…if you dare!
