Faulty Tales Plays to Rave Reviews

Faulty TalesTM, the long-running and brilliant parody of the greatest BBC sitcom ever to be made, has returned with great acclaim to the Wentworth Falls Country Club.

Featuring a whole new script, Faulty TalesTM, promises a brilliant night of food and entertainment for new and regular audiences alike. The show positions itself as a modern twist on the BBC classic. The talented cast of local actors focus on re-creating everyone’s favourite characters – bringing them into the present day and cleverly lampooning aspects of Australian society and culture as they do.

This seems to be a formula that works, with 2018 marking the 23rd year that Faulty TalesTM has been entertaining audiences in the Blue Mountains to regular rave reviews. This in itself is quite a feat, and it’s one that the cast is extremely proud of.

 “We call it the ‘mousetrap of the mountains,’” says Marnie O’Mara who has played the role of Cibil for the last fourteen years. “There are very few dinner theatre shows that have had such longevity.”

Managing Director of Boxboards Theatre, Matthew Barry (who also portrays the role of Bazil) attributes the production’s enduring popularity to the interactive nature of the show itself.

“We bring the audience into the world of their favourite TV show,” said Mr. Barry. “From the moment you are met at the door to the end of the evening, patrons feel as though they are actually staying at the infamous hotel.”

This year, the familiar faces of Ms. O’Mara (Cibil) and Mr. Barry (Basil) are joined onstage by Kate-Michelle Simms as Pollie and Scott Wotherspoon as Manwell. Robert Hall will also join the cast as a mysterious guest whose appearance throws the hotel’s staff into a frantic frenzy.

For those local community members who have not yet booked a visit to television’s most infamous hotel, the good news is that there are still limited tickets available for the production’s last two weeks of performances from 27 July – 4 August. Tickets for these performances can still be purchased online.

If you still need convincing to take the plunge, then take a look at these reviews by audience members (collected via direct speech, email or social media).

“Had a fantastic evening tonight seeing Faulty Tales at the Wentworth Falls Country Club! A great performance tonight by all – great food, great company and plenty of laughter! If you haven’t been, do yourself a favour and get your tickets now!” – Kurt Von Riegen

“Faulty Tales at Wentworth Falls is a fun night. A lovely dinner set in the dining room of Faulty’s hotel. Prepare to be abused as only Basil can get away with. It’s really nice to have the interaction with the players at the finish.” – Lynette Simms

“Great show, lots of laughs and topical content thrown in. The acting was top class. We all had a very enjoyable night.” – Sydna Turner

“What great fun we had at Faulty Tales on Saturday night! The acting was excellent, and it was great to see contemporary content being cleverly added. It was all a great laugh. Well done to all!” – Jennifer Turnbull

“Faulty Tales is entertaining, witty and a credit to Matthew [Basil, and managing director of Boxboards Theatre] and his fellow cast and crew. The inclusion of the audience in the show made for a great night.” – Bill Skouros
