No Naughty Bits is Steve Thompson’s new comedy about America’s attempt to censor Monty Python.
As a series of Monty Python airs on American Network television for the first time, it emerges that all the naughty bits have been cut. Terry Gilliam and Michael Palin take on the networks and the American courts, as they try to explain English humour and keep the rude bits in.
No Naughty Bits writer Thompson has previously written Damages (Bush theatre), Whipping It up (Bush and Ambassadors theatres), Roaring Trade and Song Of The City (both Soho theatre). His television credits include Sherlock and Doctor Who.
No Naughty Bits, which is a world premiere, is directed by Hampstead Theatre’s Artistic Director Edward Hall.
