The Full Monty
Based on the book by Terance McNally, The Full Monty is a story of six unemployed steel workers. With the industry in decline and the steelworks closed down, there is widespread unemployment and despair. The men are miserable, have no money and even less in the way of prospects. But when they catch their wives going crazy over some professional male dancers, they get inspired: Why not make some quick cash showing off their "real man" bodies by becoming a team of male strippers? The men decide to give it a go, but realize they can't dance and aren't what most would call good physical specimens. To make matters worse, and to drum up further interest in their scheme, they boast they'll go "the full monty" - something they hadn't planned on and aren't sure they can deliver. It's too late now. They're committed to performing so they continue practising for the big night.
Will they? Won't they? Can they keep their antics from their families? Can they stay out of trouble? Can they pull in a good crowd?
As the guys prepare for the show, they discover that the strength in camaraderie goes a long way toward building confidence and overcoming fear. Stay tuned ... all will be revealed .. well, maybe!
