The Full Monty

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - DVD & BLURAY -

Royal and Dern­gate, Northamp­ton, Jan­uary 15 to Jan­uary 19

The hit stage adap­ta­tion of The Full Monty, which won the 2013 UK Theatre Award for Best Tour­ing Pro­duc­tion, re­turns to Northamp­ton, from Tues­day. In 1997, a British film about six out-of-work Sh­effield steel­work­ers with noth­ing to lose took the world by storm, be­com­ing one of the most suc­cess­ful British films ever made. Si­mon Beau­foy, the Os­car and BAFTA-win­ning writer of the film, has gone all the way with this hi­lar­i­ous and heart­felt adap­ta­tion that gets stand­ing ova­tions ev­ery night, and fea­tures the iconic songs by Donna Sum­mer, Hot Choco­late and Tom Jones, as

heard in the film. The all-star cast is led again by Gary Lucy (Luke Mor­gan in Hol­lyoaks, win­ner of Danc­ing On Ice) who has made the part of Gaz his own, along with An­drew Dunn (best known as Tony in Din­ner­ladies and for his reg­u­lar ap­pear­ances play­ing Alas­tair Camp­bell in Brem­ner, Bird & For­tune) as Ger­ald, Louis Em­er­ick (Mike Thorn­berry in Coro­na­tion Street, Nor­man the Door­man in Benidorm) as Horse, Joe Gill

(Finn Bar­ton in Em­merdale) as Lom­per, Kai Owen (Rhys in Torch­wood) as Dave and James Red­mond (Abs Den­ham in Ca­su­alty) as Guy. Join­ing them will be Liz Car­ney as Jean, Amy Thomp­son as Mandy, Bry­onie Pritchard as Linda and Kee­ley Fitzger­ald as Sharon. Through these wo­man we see the other side of the story, the chal­leng­ing jour­neys they face to stand by their men and how they ul­ti­mately take their hats off to them all. From the award-win­ning pro­duc­ers David Pugh and Dafydd Rogers, this is the last ever UK tour of the hugely suc­cess­ful Sh­effield The­atres’ pro­duc­tion of The Full Monty.
