THE FULL MONTY

Synopsis: After spying on their wives at a Girls’ Night Out party, six unemployed steel workers decide to make some much-needed money by doing a strip act.  THE FULL MONTY follows the hilarious preparations for the act, from audition to performance, and chronicles the touching developments of these lovable misfits’ relationships as they not only learn what friendship is all about, but also give a giant boost to their self-esteem.  Brief nudity is required by the principals, but all ensemble members should be comfortable with their bodies, as several scenes feature various stages of undress.
