Life of Brian
Bring something to sit on and whatever you need to stay warm and dry
Starting life as a joke movie title – ‘Jesus Christ: Lust for Glory’ – Monty Python’s 1979 biblical satire delighted audiences and outraged Mary Whitehouse. Deciding against a focus on JC (Christ, not Cleese), the film features a baby born in the stable next door to Him on the same night, who grows up to be… Brian.
Regarded by many, including Michael Palin, to be the best Python film, Life of Brian gave birth to a lifetime of memorable lines and characters, and still holds up brilliant today, 50 years after release. But remember, he’s not the messiah…
Festival stalwarts, Dirty South and Dulwich Raider from @Deserterblog return to present an evening of hilarity, irreverence and booze, but not necessarily in that order.
Fancy Dress strongly encouraged, beards advisable for women.
We plan to screen this event in the pub garden, so please wear appropriate clothing. In the event of poor weather, the screening will take place inside.
