(Mark Mulder & Annie Robinson)

Coming up at from Schlesinger Theatre at Michaelhouse on October 20 and 22 is Tarty Flowers, a comedy picnic theatre dinner.

There's only one Fawlty Towers – and there's no other married couple quite like Basil and Sybil!

The BBC television sitcom from the 1970's, voted the best British TV series of all time, has fans all over the world, including Annie Robinson and Mark Mulder! Confirmed Fawlty fans since the '70's, gifted South African comedienne Annie and accomplished Mark – currently back on SABC TV in The Game – now get the chance to share the uniquely Fawlty experience with KZN audiences in their new two-hander comedy show, Tarty Flowers!

Devised and directed by Paul Spence, Tarty Flowers! Is pure, delicious Fawlty fun from first word to last. The much put-upon Basil, bossy Sybil, eccentric waiter Manuel and pretty Polly are all there – and the audience suddenly get the distinct feeling that they are guests in the dining room of the infamous Torquay hotel!

Tarty Flowers has performances on October 20 and 22 at 19h00 in the Centenary Centre at Michaelhouse. This is supper theatre format – bring your own food and drink. Tickets: R120 (audience seated in tables of 10). Bookings through Mrs Angela Jonsson on 033 234 1314 or email:
