Gary Lucy, Andrew Dunn, Louis Emerick, Joe Gill, Kai Owen and James Redmond play six out of work Sheffield steelworkers with nothing to lose in this hugely successful stage show based on the smash hit film by Simon Beaufoy.
Featuring Donna Summer, Hot Chocolate and Tom Jones hits, this one is bound to have me singing all the way home from the theatre.
I saw the film version in 1997 as a bit of light relief from moving house. It was the first time in a long time that my jaws ached with laughter and the first and last time that I actually bought a pre-recorded video.
The credits for this stage production are impressive, so here they are, straight from the press release:
“Produced by multi–award winning theatre producers David Pugh & Dafydd Rogers and directed by Rupert Hill, the all-star cast will be led again by Gary Lucy (Hollyoaks, EastEnders, The Bill, Footballers’s Wives, winner of Dancing On Ice). Joining Lucy is: Andrew Dunn (Dinnerladies, Bremner, Bird & Fortune) as Gerald; Louis Emerick (Coronation Street, Benidorm, Brookside, Last of the Sumer Wine) as Horse; Joe Gill (Emmerdale) as Lomper; Kai Owen (Torchwood, Hollyoaks) as Dave; and James Redmond (Hollyoaks, Casualty) as Guy.”
Another side to the story develops through the women (played by Liz Carney, Amy Thompson, Bryonie Pritchard and Keeley Fitzgerald) and how they stand by their men in very challenging times.
This new production will be directed by Rupert Hill whose directing credits include Leatherbird, MoleHills, and Rolling with Punches. He is also known for playing Jamie Baldwin in Coronation Street and was previously a Full Monty cast member.
