This particular play is a musical comedy that has been ripped off from a film named Monty Python and the Holy Grail in the mid seventies. Like the film before it, this play also includes a much cheeky parody of the Arthurian Legend. Still it is much different from the film in several ways. This play has been authored by Eric Idle, who is a prized member of the Monty Python team. He has also written the musicals book and lyrics and has collaborated with John Du Prez regarding the musical composition. Apart from that the original Broadway production had made its debut in 2005 and was directed by Mike Nichols, and had managed to bag three Tony Awards, including the Tony Award for the Best Musical of the year 2004–2005. As for the nominations, all in all it received fourteen Tony Award nominations.
Prior to the play a recording that encourages the members of the audience much regarding letting their cell phones and pagers ring but at the same time warns them that if they do then they should be aware as heavily armed knights that are performing on the stage may drag them and “stab” them. The first act of the play begins with the historian giving a brief overview of the medieval England. It shows a Scandinavian village which has several gaily dressed Finnish villagers who are singing and dancing to the song named "Fisch Schlapping." The scene shifts, the historian returns and exclaims that he had said "England" and not "Finland". Then suddenly the scene changes yet again and all the villagers disperse only to be replaced by a scene that includes a dark village that has several monks that have hoods and are saying Latin prayers loudly and are hitting themselves on the head with the bibles.
