This stage musical has a collection of wonderful and original songs. It tells the true story of the women of the Ford Dagenham’s car plant and their fight for equal pay. Thought provoking, entertaining and emotional.

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 and in Halewood too. This strike was influential in the passing of the Equal Pay Act of 1970, which marks its 50th anniversary in 2020. 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. The women vote unanimously to strike (“Everybody Out”) and encourage the women at the Liverpool factory to strike also. Rita gives a rousing speech at a televised Trade Union Conference (“Stand Up”), leading to the passing of equal pay within the union.

An inspirational story for Equal Rights!
