EastEnders’ star Gary Lucy goes The Full Monty this autumn

The Full Monty

The Full Monty heads out on a national tour this autumn with Eastenders’ star Gary Lucy leading a cast that includes Andrew Dunn, Louis Emerick, Rupert Hill, Martin Miller and Bobby Schofield.

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 again, only this time, they really have to go The Full Monty…live on stage.

Simon Beaufoy, the Oscar winning writer of the film, went all the way with this hilarious and heartfelt adaptation that received critical and public acclaim across the UK, with standing ovations every night.
