"A-…Hilariously profane 'docudrama'"-Entertainment Weekly
"A Sgt. Pepper's-like mash-up of animation, surrealism, fourth-wall breaking, and drag" -The Times (U.K.)
Holy Flying Circus reimagines the controversy surrounding Monty Python's 1979 film, Life of Brian, which was greeted with widespread outcry and accusations of blasphemy. Matters reached a head when Michael Palin and John Cleese agreed to take part in a BBC talk show about Life of Brian with a Church of England bishop and a staunchly Catholic broadcaster. The ensuing TV debate put the Pythons in their most absurd role yet: the voice of reason.
From Oscar®-nominated writer Tony Roche (In the Loop) and starring Darren Boyd (Little Dorrit), Charles Edwards (The Shell Seekers), Tom Fisher (The Illusionist), and Stephen Fry (Jeeves and Wooster), this fantastical docudrama is a Pythonesque peek behind the scenes of one of the most notorious-and beloved-films from the legendary troupe.
Well done and hilarious recounting of the Brian controversy as reenacted by a brilliant assembly of top-notch talent. Read morePublished 8 months ago by James Yoakum
