Monty Python's The Meaning of Life

Modern Classic
Monday, July 22
Philanthropy Theatre

The meaning of life is a question many have pondered. Britain’s ribald Monty Python troupe brings its enduring, unique perspective to the journey from birth to death. Meaning of Life returns to the troupe’s sketch comedy format as they show the absurdity of different aspects of society, from a doctor more interested in impressing administrators with his shiny equipment than the woman in labor to a British officer being presented with going away gifts during the Battle of the Somme in World War I. A larger budget than their previous films allowed them to include original songs (wink wink, nudge nudge) as well as a short film, The Crimson Permanent Assurance. — Erin Ritter
