Based on the 2010 film of the same name, Made in Dagenham – The Musical is drawn from the real-life 1968 sewing machinists strike at the Ford factory in Dagenham, Essex. 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.
Weston College Performing Arts students present this uplifting musical. Full of energy, grit and passion, Made in Dagenham brings recognition to everyday women standing up for their rights. A smash hit musical not to be missed!
