The Full Monty is one of the most acclaimed British films ever and THE FULL MONTY stage play has become one of the most phenomenal theatrical productions ever.

This chuffing brilliant production about six out-of-work, impoverished steelworkers from Sheffield with nothing to lose took the world by storm and has become one of Britain’s most successful shows.

Based on his smash hit film and adapted for the stage by Oscar-winning writer Simon Beaufoy, this hilarious and heartfelt production has received standing ovations every night and features the iconic songs from the film by Donna Summer, Hot Chocolate and Tom Jones.

 

THE FULL MONTY is Simon Beaufoy’s first work for the theatre. His screen credits include The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Salmon Fishing in Yemen, Battle of the Sexes and Slumdog Millionaire, as well as The Full Monty.

 

The UK & Ireland Tour of THE FULL MONTY has design by Robert Jones and choreography by Ian West, with casting by Marc Frankum.

The 2018/19 UK & Ireland Tour of Simon Beaufoy’s THE FULL MONTY, based on the Fox Searchlight Pictures motion picture, is presented by David Pugh & Dafydd Rogers and is a Sheffield Theatres production.
