Similarly to the original British film, The Full Monty follows six out of work Sheffield steelworkers living in a town on the brink of collapse. Desperate to avoid poverty, they make a last-ditch attempt to dodge the dole queue and come up with a more inventive way to make some money. In an unlikely turn of events, they quickly become a sought after troupe of male strippers! The Full Monty features the much-loved tunes of Tom Hones, Donna Summer and Hot Chocolate.
The Full Monty stars Sidney Cole as Horse, Kenny Doughty (Coronation Street, Stella) as Gaz, Craig Gazey (Coronation Street) as Lomper, Roger Morlidge (The English Patient) as Dave, Kieran O’Brien (Holby Blue) as Guy and Simon Rouse (The Bill) as Gerald. Further cast also includes Scott Anson, Tracy Brabin, Caroline Carver, Eamonn Fleming, Elaine Glover, Rachel Lumberg and Ian Mercer.
Adapted for the stage by original screenwriter Simon Beaufoy, The Full Monty is directed by Daniel Evans (Sunday in the Park with George), with design by Robert Jones, choreography by Steven Hoggett, lighting design by Tim Lutkin and original music and sound design by Ben and Max Ringham. A smash-hit across the UK, The Full Monty is the hilarious and heart-wrenching story of comradery, love and ambition which is set to bare all at London’s Noel Coward Theatre.
