Prepare to laugh and cry as you immerse yourself in 1960s’ working class life following the story of Rita O’Grady, working mother and eventually TUC spokeswoman, in this fast-paced musical based on real events from the Ford car plant in Dagenham.  The women’s fight and consequent strike is the back drop for a struggle which is still making headlines today – equality in the workplace.  Add to this the ebb and flow of married life, gender stereotyping, class differences and finely-drawn characterisation, and you have all the elements which make for a brilliant musical – you simply need the addition of a great musical score which has everything from fist-punching rally cries to heart-felt ballads with haunting harmonies.

 

Punchy dialogue and the sometimes foul-mouthed humour of the factory floor contrasts with the poignancy of the internal conflicts as the drama unfolds.  Follow the story of the factory girls, their co-workers and the political battle-axes of the time, Harold Wilson and Barbara Castle, in this emotional roller coaster of a musical about love, friendship and standing up to be counted!
