Based on the 2010 film of the same name, Made in Dagenham is drawn from the real life 1968 sewing machinists strike at the Ford factory in Dagenham, Essex. This strike was influential in the passing of the Equal Pay Act of 1970.

The musical focuses on the leader of the strike, Rita O’Grady, as she encourages the women of the Ford factory to walk out after they are re-classified as unskilled workers while their male counterparts see their wages increase. After Rita is patronised and snubbed by the factory at a union meeting, the women’s grievances over their worker status turn into a fight for equal pay. Determined not to be treated like the poor relation, the women vote unanimously to strike and encourage the women at the Liverpool factory to strike also.

However, when the American bosses fly in and lay off 5000 men as a result, including Rita’s husband, Eddie, cracks begin to show in the women’s solidarity.

Will Rita risk her marriage and friendships and continue her efforts for equality?

Featuring a fun and uplifting score, Made in Dagenham is a must-see!

NB In order to make the dialogue as realistic as possible, it includes the use of strong swear words.
