The last ever UK and Ireland tour of Simon Beaufoy’s award-winning stage play adaptation of The Full Monty will be coming to Bromley next month.

The film went on to become one of the most acclaimed British films of all time. Picture: The Full Monty UK Touring Production 2018/19The film went on to become one of the most acclaimed British films of all time. Picture: The Full Monty UK Touring Production 2018/19

The all-star cast will be led by Gary Lucy (Hollyoaks, EastEnders, The Bill, Footballers’ Wives and winner of Dancing on Ice), who has made the part of Gaz his own.

He is joined by Andrew Dunn (Dinnerladies) as Gerald, Louis Emerick (Coronation Street, Benidorm, Brookside, Last of the Summer Wine) as Horse, Joe Gill (Emmerdale) as Lomper, Kai Owen (Torchwood, Hollyoaks) as Dave and James Redmond (Hollyoaks, Casualty) as Guy.

Telling the story of six out-of-work steelworkers from Sheffield who put on a strip show to raise much-needed cash, the film went on to become one of the most acclaimed British movies of all time, and The Full Monty stage play has become one of the most phenomenal productions ever.

“People really love it,” Gary said.

The production will be at the Churchill Theatre from Monday October 22 - Saturday October 27. Picture: The Full Monty UK Touring Production 2018/19The production will be at the Churchill Theatre from Monday October 22 - Saturday October 27. Picture: The Full Monty UK Touring Production 2018/19

“From proper theatregoers in Cambridge to Blackpool hen parties, everyone has an absolute ball.

“It is a gift of a role for me.”

Louis said: “This is the third tour for me and it really is a special show.”

Joe believes the play’s credibility is key to its success.

“It is my first time on the show,” he said. “But everyone knows how iconic it is and what a culture it has.”

Also a newbie to the show, James has never toured a stage play before.

He said: “We can all relate to it and it is very moving.

“It’s a heart-warming story that still feels relevant today.”

Liz Carney plays Jean. She said: “It appeals to men and women of all ages and from all classes.

“The girls in the play tell their own story, so audiences can connect with them too.”

Amy Thompson, who plays Mandy, agrees: “The things that I find really special is that it gets people coming to the theatre who haven’t been before.”

The Full Monty will be at the Churchill Theatre, High Street, Bromley from Monday, October 22 - Saturday, October 27.
