Made in Dagenham

13th-17th November 2018

Based on the 2010 film of the samename, Made in Dagenham is drawn from the real-life 1968 swing 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 reclassified as unskilled workers, while their male counterparts see their wages increase.
