Its EXTRAORDINARY what ORDINARY people can do!
Meet the Essex girls who changed the world!
Join award-winning local group, Musical Theatre Stafford as they bring this uplifting musical comedy to the Gatehouse Theatre this October. Inspired by a true story and based on the hit movie, Made in Dagenham, is the highly acclaimed new British musical comedy about friendship, love and the importance of fighting for what is right.
Essex 1968. Like millions of other working women, Rita O’Grady spends each morning just trying to get her husband out of bed, get the kids off to school and get to work at the factory on time. But life is about to change when its announced that the girls in the stitching room of Ford’s Dagenham car plant, will have their pay grade dropped to ‘unskilled’. Drawing on a strength she never knew she had, Rita leads her friends in a battle against the might of Ford and the corruption of the Union supposed to protect them. As the women’s inspiring journey gets bigger than anyone could have imagined, the pressure gets too much for some. But can Rita keep up the fight and the happy home she’s worked so hard for?
Funny, touching and timeless, Made in Dagenham, shows how ordinary people can do extraordinary things when they stand together.
