PYTHONESQUE

THE LEGEND CONTINUES!

Playwright ROY SMILES’ brilliant and irreverent trilogy on comedy history ends fittingly with his ingenious comic review, PYTHONESQUE. Having conjured up the spirit of The Goons in "Ying Tong – A Walk with the Goons", and resurrected the ground-breaking satire of Beyond the Fringe and Pete and Dud in "Good Evening", Smiles completes the trilogy with PYTHONESQUE, a play commissioned by Pieter Toerien that was first seen at Theatre on the Bay in 2009.

In a season before the production travels to Los Angeles, you can follow the story of the Oxford and Cambridge graduates John Cleese, Michael Palin, Graham Chapman, Terry Jones, Eric Idle and the previously-American Terry Gilliam, who in 1969 formed one of the best loved comedy troupes ever – Monty Python’s Flying Circus!

Directed by ALAN SWERDLOW (Constellations, The Mousetrap, Pythonesque, The History Boys, God of Carnage, Boeing-Boeing, Travels With My Aunt, Good Evening, Ying Tong A Walk With the Goons, Tuesdays with Morrie)

With ROBERT FRIDJHON, GRAHAM HOPKINS, THEO LANDEY and RUSSEL SAVADIER as The Pythons
