When:             Sunday 24th Jan 2021

Synopsis:        The Full Monty is a 1997 British comedy film but turned into a play by the film’s author. The play is set in Sheffield, England during the 1980’s and tells the story of six unemployed men, four of them former steel workers, who decide to form a male striptease act (à la Chippendale dancers) in order to gather enough money for the main character, Gaz, to be able to see his son, Nathan. Gaz declares that their show will be better than the Chippendales dancers because they will go “the full monty “— strip all the way — hence the title.

Despite being a comedy, the film also touches on serious subjects such as unemployment, farther’s rights,  depression, impotence, homosexuality, body image, working class culture and suicide.

The play will require at least north country (England) accents, but this will be handled during rehearsals and of course, the 6 lead males must be prepared to appear naked if only for a few seconds at the end of the play.
