    Daley Donnelly - Manuel - Faulty Towers - Interactive Theatre International

    Daley Donnelly has a Bachelor of Arts in Drama, having studied drama in York, England. Since completing his degree, Daley has toured the United Kingdom with many theatre companies, and has worked extensively in Theatre in Education and Children's Theatre. Daley currently specialises in heritage interpretation in his home state of Queensland. In 2004, Daley collaborated with Alison Pollard-Mansergh to write a murder mystery based on the life and death of Fletcher Christian. This is now performed weekly on Norfolk Island to tourist groups. Having performed throughout England, Ireland, Scotland (including the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in both 2009 and 2010), and the Netherlands, Daley has received much critical acclaim for his role in Faulty Towers the Dining Experience, which he has been performing since 2004.

    Daley plays Manuel in Interactive Theatre International's 'Faulty Towers the Dining Experience', and has toured with the show throughout Australia, UK, Ireland, and Netherlands.  Daley has appeared with the show at Adelaide Fringe Festival, Melbourne International Comedy Festival and Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

    Personal reviews:

    "Poor Manuel takes the brunt of the criticism, of course, with Donnelly genius in the role made famous by Andrew Sachs. His attempt to serve the rolls to guests is masterclass, for instance. Following what Fawlty deemed a simple enough instruction of "Manuel. Roll. On Plate", it's hysterical watching the poor waiter try to work out what his boss is talking about. Standing for a few seconds until the penny drops, he lifts a plate from a table, dusts it down and then attempts to, you've guessed it, roll on it on the floor."

    "The faux pas from the ever confused Manuel played with great believability and likeness by Daley Donnelly, taking everything way too literally including some incidents with nuts and condiments ... ensure there is never a dull moment."

    "Donnelly delivers a near flawless performance as the downtrodden Manuel."

    "Daley Donnelly does well as Manuel, hopelessly misinterpreting Basil's every command"
