Words by Roseanne May Cross,
‘The Full Monty,’ a classic film set in Steel City itself, is set to take to Sheffield stages this month. The film is based during a time Steel Mills were closing, leaving six Steelworkers unemployed who decide to turn their talents into a male striptease act. As well as fantastic entertainment, the film tackles various topics such as homosexuality, obesity, suicide and parental rights.
Now the play is back with direction from the Oscar winning writer director of the film himself, Simon Beaufoy who’s bringing this hilarious adaptation back to life. One thing the film is renowned for is its brilliant soundtrack, featuring songs by Donna Summer, Hot Chocolate and Tom Jones. This one of a kind soundtrack is sure to get the audience up on their feet!
With the production by David Pugh and Dafydd Rogers, (multi award-winning producers of ART, Brief Encounter and Calendar Girls), this is sure to be a night to remember.
This comedic yet heartfelt play features lovable characters portrayed by an impressive cast, Gary Lucy, Andrew Dunn, Louis Emerick, Rupert Hill, Martin Miller and Bobby Schofield have had standing ovations from the audience every night so far!
‘The Full Monty’ is set to have audiences dropping everything to go see it!
