In what appears to be a reversal of conventional gender roles the male characters of the New Zealand play Ladies Night (1987) and the British film The Full Monty (1997) strip for a female audience. In 1998, the playwrights filed a plagiarism lawsuit claiming the film merely ?opened out? their original text. STRIPPING MEN explores Ladies Night and The Full Monty as symptoms and representations of a so-called male crisis, comparing them to see how the men that make them (re)define maleness in the ?Post-feminist? era. It examines the notion that popular (male) culture has taken over ? in essence, plagiarised ? the position of women as victims of social oppression. What do men achieve by appropriating the role and discourse of the female as other? In stripping back the generic layers that are used to stage/frame the male bodies and their relationship with the audience, what is revealed is the successful attempt by men to reclaim social dominance by redressing themselves in ?feminism? and representing ?equality' between men and women.
