Monty Python's Life Of Brian
Is there a better place to watch the classic Monty Python film Life Of Brian than in our outdoor amphitheatre arena? You’d be hard pressed to think of one, plus it also fits in nicely with MAC’s current season of controversial film and television Down With This Sort Of Thing, what with it being banned in several countries and by a number local authorities in the UK for its supposedly blasphemous content.
The story follows poor Brian Cohen (Chapman), a Jewish anti-Roman activist mistaken for the Messiah through a series of unfortunate coincidences (he was, for example, born in the manger next door to that more famous stable) and near-constant misunderstandings and exaggerations by his growing band of clueless followers – all of which provide ample opportunity for the entire Monty Python ensemble to question everyone and everything from ex-lepers, Pontius Pilate and the art of haggling, to revolutionaries, fanatics, Roman centurions and crucifixion.
