This year marks the 40th anniversary of the first broadcast of Fawlty Towers on the BBC and also marks Hemel Hempstead Theatre Company’s 90th anniversary. To celebrate these two momentous occasions HHTC is presenting two episodes from Fawlty Towers at Boxmoor Playhouse and will provide a dinner inbetween, served by the hotel staff ... let’s hope the dinner makes it to the tables!

The show runs from Wednesday May 14 through to Saturday 16 at 7.30pm with dinner, and there is a Sunday performance on May 17 at 2.30pm, with afternoon tea served. Ticket prices include the evening meal/afternoon tea and cost £18 for the evening performances and £16 for the matinee. Please select your food option when booking, vegetarian or non-vegetarian.
