West End transfer for Full Monty

First Published 26 April 2013, Last Updated 26 April 2013

The acclaimed Sheffield Theatres production of The Full Monty will transfer to the West End next year for a strictly limited 16-week season.

Playing from 20 February (press night 25 February) to 14 June at the Noël Coward theatre, The Full Monty tells the well-known story of a group of out-of-work steelworkers, under the shadow of Margaret Thatcher’s government, who have nothing to lose.

The original cast, which includes Kenny Doughty, Craig Gazey, Simon Rouse, Keiran O’Brien, Roger Morlidge, Sidney Cole, Scott Anson, Tracy Brabin, Caroline Carver, Eamonn Fleming, Elaine Glover, Rachel Lumberg and Ian Mercer, will transfer with the production.

Directed by Sheffield Theatres’ Artistic Director Daniel Evans, The Full Monty is adapted for the stage by Simon Beaufoy, the Academy Award-winning writer behind the hit 1997 film, whose more recent hits include Slumdog Millionaire and Salmon Fishing In The Yemen.

This production, which marks Beaufoy’s first work for the stage, features choreography by this year’s Olivier Award nominee Steven Hoggett, who is recognised alongside Scott Graham for his work on National Theatre hit The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time, and designs by Robert Jones.

In his review of The Full Monty when it opened at Sheffield’s Crucible theatre earlier this year, The Independent’s Jonathan Brown said: “It provides a brilliantly entertaining night out which was rapturously received by an audience that gave it a strenuous and richly-deserved standing ovation, sending hundreds of theatregoers spilling out into the streets laughing and happy.”

Following the recent influx of new shows to the West End, offering affordable pricing initiatives, The Full Monty follows suit with all preview tickets ranging from £4.75 to £26.25 and no booking fees, premium seats or restoration levy across all tickets. The show’s producers David Pugh and Dafydd Rogers said: “The only rip-off on this production will be the clothes.”

The Full Monty will open at the Noël Coward theatre following the Jude Law-led production of Henry V, the final production of the Michael Grandage Company’s inaugural season, which also sees Skyfall co-stars Judi Dench and Ben Whishaw star in current hit Peter And Alice, Daniel Radcliffe take to the stage in The Cripple Of Inishmaan, and David Walliams and this year’s Olivier Awards host Sheridan Smith appear in A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
