Last week I visited The Lyceum theatre in Sheffield to watch the brilliant "Full Monty" , the play of the marvellous film that was written about the demise of the steelworks in our own city of Sheffield in the 1980's (thanks to Mrs Thatcher!).
The play, like the film demonstrates perfectly the total and utter despair of the men that have lost their jobs when the unthinkable was happening. And it shows the gritty northern humour that always shines through and helps carry people through and bonds them together in desperate time.
These times seem so long ago now but the effects still can be seen in this wonderful city of ours.
If you can catch the play, I urge you to. It's moving and funny - a great night out! x
