Barossa Arts & Convention Centre presents
The Dining Experience
16th February, 2017
Doors open 7:00pm
Performance commences at 7:30pm
This globetrotting show is truly quite legendary, selling out in places like Sydney Opera House, Raffles Singapore and London’s West End.
When the audience become diners in the ‘Faulty Towers’ restaurant and are served by Basil, Sybil and Manuel, pretty much anything can happen – especially with two-thirds of the show improvised. The fun starts as guests wait to be seated, then hurtles along in a tour de force of gags, shambolic service and a ‘70s-style 3-course meal. Expect the unexpected in this ‘superb evening of food and comedy’ (Limelight Magazine, Sydney Opera House 2016).
‘A sometimes traumatically funny night out, this has to be one of the picks of the Fringe… worth every penny (and insult).’ Rip It Up, Adelaide Fringe 2016
‘Lashings of laughter… who knew dining out could be such a chaotic adventure’Stage Whispers, Melbourne International Comedy Festival 2016
