Made in Dagenham
Tuesday 29th October – Saturday 2nd November 2019
Evening performances at 7.30pm
Matinee on Saturday at 2.30pm
Inspired by a true story and based on the hit movie, Made in Dagenham is the uplifting new musical comedy about friendship, love and the importance of fighting for what is right.
Rita O’Grady works for the Ford Motor Co. plant in Dagenham, England. Despite performing the specialised task of sewing upholstery for car seats, women are classified as unskilled labour and paid much less than men. Encouraged by a sympathetic union representative, Rita agrees to bring the women’s grievances to Ford. The meeting goes badly and, outraged by the company’s lack of respect for them, Rita leads her colleagues to strike.
With a laugh-out-loud script by Richard Bean (One Man, Two Guvnors, The Hypocrite) and dubbed “The best British musical since Billy Elliot” by The Stage when it hit the West End in 2014, the show is bursting with catchy songs and feel-good humour.
Recommended for ages 12+ at parents’ discretion; contains strong language.
