Faulty Towers The Dining Experience

Interactive Theatre International presents:

Faulty Towers The Dining Experience
– This globetrotting show is truly quite legendary, selling out in places like Sydney Opera House, Raffles Singapore and London’s West End. It comes to Coconut Grove Restaurant & Bar in March 2017 – but be warned: it’ll sell out here too, so early booking is essential!
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

Born in Brisbane in 1997, Faulty Towers The Dining Experience is a fully immersive, highly improvised and site-specific piece of comedy theatre that continues to be acclaimed around the world by audiences and critics alike. It opened a residency in London’s West End in 2012 and continues there still, ranking consistently high in TripAdvisor’s top London theatre listings.

Ten teams of cast now tour the world virtually non-stop. The cast for Coconut Grove Restaurant & Bar features Donna Gray (Sybil), Jack Baldwin (Basil) and Terence Frisch (Manuel).

November 18, 2016 – Antigua and Barbuda is celebrating His Royal Highness Prince Harry’s visit to Antigua and Barbuda by creating a specialty cocktail, ‘The Prince’s Ginger’, made with the twin-island nation’s world famous, award-winning English Harbour rum and featuring fresh locally sourced ingredients.

The cocktail follows in a historic royal tradition as it is inspired by a special liqueur created for King Edward VII in 1903 called “The King’s Ginger’.  This drink was commissioned by the Royal Physician to stimulate and revivify His Majesty during his morning rides in his carriage.

Prince Harry will be visiting Antigua and Barbuda as part of his Caribbean tour on behalf of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, in recognition of Antigua and Barbuda’s 35th Anniversary of Independence and the continued close ties between the UK and the Commonwealth. Prince Harry’s first stop will be in Antigua and Barbuda where he will participate in a variety of activities from November 20 – 22nd.

The aptly named ginger cocktail was invented by Timmy Thomas, a bartender at Coconut Grove – a popular beach bar-restaurant for locals and visitors alike. Timmy is not only one of the greatest bartenders on the island, with over 19 years of experience, but he was recently recognized for his talents by Angostura, where he was named the Brand Ambassador for the company.  Timmy’s specialty is using the twin-island nation’s fresh local produce and ingredients to create unique, refreshing and delicious cocktails.

The Prince’s Ginger cocktail is exclusively available at Coconut Grove, an establishment that represents the best of what Antigua and Barbuda has to offer, nestled amongst palm trees and lush tropical vegetation, facing a sweep of white sand and turquoise ocean. The atmosphere is the perfect combination of tranquility and vibrancy, fun and romance. For those who might not be able to visit Antigua and Barbuda, but would still like to try The Prince’s Ginger, the recipe is as follows:

Ingredients:

1 1/2 oz – English Harbour 5 year Rum

2 1/2 oz –  fresh “Antigua Black” pineapple juice

1/2 oz – fresh lemon juice

2-4 – local ginger slices

4 – freshly picked lemon grass sprigs

1/2 oz – sugar syrup

3-4 dashes of Angostura bitters

Method:

–         Muddle ginger slices and lemon grass springs in a mixing glass.

–         Add all remaining ingredients to muddled mixture.

–         Add ice then shake vigorously.

–         Double strain into a high ball glass.

–         Fill with ice.

Garnish with lemongrass and “Antigua Black” pineapple peel.
