MONTY PYTHON CELEBRATION APRIL 24–26

Spend the closing weekend of the Festival in very silly style as we celebrate the 40th anniversary of the classic Monty Python and the Holy Grail with the legends themselves, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, and Michael Palin.

To complete the celebration, select Pythons will introduce the premiere of a new documentary and retrospective screenings of their movie masterworks, all weekend long.

Monty Python: the Meaning of Live
Perhaps best known for its eminently quotable films, Monty Python has performed its signature, surreal humor in live shows since the group’s earliest days. Dive into the history of Python’s live work and the genesis of some of its most well-known pieces. Monty Python: the Meaning of Life is a hilarious and illuminating survey of the process behind the Pythons.
