- COMMUNICATION PROBLEMS from fawlty Towers by John Cleese and Connie Boothe
- Basil tangles with the intermittently deaf Mrs Richards in this hilarious group script for 4 or 5 players
MRS RICHARDS: When I pay for a view I expect something more interesting than that. BASIL: That is Torquay, madam. MRS RICHARDS: Well, it’s not good enough. BASIL: Well.. . may I ask what you were expecting to see out of a Torquay hotel bedroom window? Sydney Opera House perhaps? The Hanging Gardens of Babylon? Herds of wildebeest sweeping majestically…. MRS RICHARDS: Don’t be silly. I expect to be able to see the sea. BASIL: You can see the sea. It’s over there between the land and the sky. MRS RICHARDS: I’d need a telescope to see that.
