A new production of hit play The Full Monty will embark on a UK tour later this year, celebrating the 25th anniversary of the films release.
Simon Beaufoy’s award-winning smash hit play will open at the Everyman Theatre Cheltenham on 14 September 2023, and will travel to Buxton, Coventry, Chester, York, Norwich, Nottingham, Southampton, Bradford, Aylesbury, Cardiff and Blackpool.
This fast and funny play is still very much of our time, as again we are hit by a cost of living crisis. Gaz and his mates are down on their luck and feel they have been thrown on the scrap heap, but they are determined to fight back and bare a little more than they ever thought they would have to.
As in the 1997 smash hit film, this brand new production is a rollercoaster ride of ups and downs, laughs and heartbreak. Casting for the production is still to be announced.
The Full Monty marks the first co-production and partnership between the Everyman Theatre Cheltenham and Buxton Opera House, which recently became an Arts Council National Portfolio Organisation.
The show will be is directed by Michael Gyngell, with choreography and intimacy co-ordination by Ian West, set and costume design by Jasmine Swann, lighting design by Andrew Exeter and sound design by Chris Whybrow. The Casting Director is Marc Frankum.
