Monty Python legend and intrepid globetrotter Michael Palin brings tales of two of the most extraordinary journeys he’s ever made to the stage this autumn in a new solo tour, 'From North Korea Into Iraq'.

This show will see Michael deliver first-hand accounts of journeys through two countries on the dark side of history. These two countries are often portrayed as international pariahs, and two of the last places you'd want to visit, but for Michael, the best part of travelling is looking behind the headlines and getting to know what life is really like for the people who live there.

Michael says: "From North Korea Into Iraq may take you out of your comfort zone but I hope, like me, that once we've travelled together, your feelings about these two countries, and the wider world we share, will never be quite the same again."

Not originally intended to be a theatre, the buildings that comprise the Grand Opera House York officially opened in 1902 with Little Red Riding Hood starring Florrie Ford. Since then it has been owned by FJ Butterworth, the Shepherd of Shambles and the India Pru Co. Ltd who spent £4,000,000 restoring the theatre to its former glory in 1987.
