Gary Lucy will lead the cast in touring production of The Full Monty, which arrives at Nottingham’s Theatre Royal from February 16-21.

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.

Now, the boys are back, only this time, they really have to go The Full Monty…live on stage.

Simon Beaufoy, the Oscar-winning writer of the film, has gone all the way with this hilarious and heartfelt adaptation that’s getting standing ovations every night.

Gary Lucy (EastEnders, winner of Dancing on Ice, Footballer’s Wives, The Bill) is Gaz, with Andrew Dunn (best known as Tony in Dinnerladies as well for his regular appearances playing Alistair Campbell on Bremner, Bird and Fortune) as Gerald and Louis Emerick (Mick Johnson in Brookside and PC Walsh in Last of the Summer Wine) as Horse.

The production also 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 winning the BAFTA for The Full Monty, 127 Hours, Salmon Fishing in Yemen, Slumdog Millionaire and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.

This new production is directed by award winning director Roger Haines. The original production of The Full Monty won the UK Theatre Award for Best Touring Production.
