Palin returns to stage to celebrate Erebus paperback

Michael Palin will return to the stage for a brand new one-man stage show to celebrate the paperback publication of his latest book Erebus: The Story of A Ship

Phil McIntyre Entertainments Ltd and Penguin Random House will present "Michael Palin: Live on Stage 2019 Erebus, Python and Other Stories", which will see the Monty Python star tour 12 venues around the UK, beginning in Bournemouth on 7th June and ending in Bath on 7th July, bringing to life the story of HMS Erebus, the subject of his latest book.

The tour will be supported by local bookshops and signed copies of his books will be available to buy. Erebus: the Story of a Ship will be published by Arrow in paperback on 30th May, price: £8.99.

Penguin Random House said: “In the first part of the show, Palin brings to life the thrilling story of HMS Erebus, the tough little ship that took on the Antarctic and the Arctic in the 1840s, and which was the subject of his latest bestselling book. His richly illustrated talk conveys the triumph and tragedy of the ship’s short and doomed life, and what it was about it that made him so keen to tell its story.
 
“In the second half, Michael tells his own life story, including how his three favourite subjects at school (Geography, History and Comedy) have shaped his life, from ‘Monty Python’ to ‘Ripping Yarns’ and the many television travel series that have taken him all around the world, from the North Pole to North Korea.
 
“With previously unseen footage and previously untold stories, Michael shows how comedy and adventure have been natural bedfellows during a rich and diverse career.”
