You’ve seen the film, now see the heart-warming story of six out-of-work steel workers baring all for a better future live on stage, right here in Cambridge. Running at the Arts Theatre from 23-28 January, the show stays faithful to the plot of the well-loved 1997 film, following a group of unemployed men in Sheffield in desperate need of money. With nothing to lose, they decide to take a leaf out of the Chippendales’ book and form a male striptease troupe, with one thing setting them apart from the crowd: they’re going to go the full monty.
Adapted for the stage by Oscar-winning writer Simon Beaufoy, this uproarious production stars Gary Lucy, Anthony Lewis, Andrew Dunn, Louis Emerick, Chris Fountain and Kai Owen. The film’s soundtrack, you’ll be pleased to hear, remains intact too, featuring classic tracks by the likes of Hot Chocolate, Tom Jones and Donna Summer.
Suitable for ages 14 and over and tickets are £18-£38.
