Theatre trip: No Naughty Bits

17th September 2011 at 15:00:00

A Hampstead Theatre Production

“Why did we think we could ever make it big in the States?…The English sense of humour stops at Dover.”

In December 1975 Monty Python’s Flying Circus was broadcast coast to coast in the US for the first time… but somebody cut out all the naughty bits!

Undismayed, Michael Palin and Terry Gilliam flew to New York to persuade the Network to reinstate the cuts – and, somewhat by accident, found themselves at the centre of a landmark court case concerning freedom of expression and the protection of Artistic integrity…

Steve Thompson’s new play is a study of the nature of comedy, a study of the operation of censorship, a study of the complex misunderstandings implicit in the Anglo-American relationship… and is also, quite simply, gloriously funny.

We have reserved tickets for Steve’s new play at the Hampstead Theatre for the 3pm performance on Saturday 17th September. The cost will be about £27 per person, which is ticket, transport from the Barn and gratuities. This cost is dependent upon the numbers and how old you are! Please email [email protected], saying how many tickets are required, and if you are over 60.

Enjoy the show!
