Made In Dagenham: The Musical

Musical theatre based on the true story of the 1968 Ford Sewing Machinists Strike, presented by TADLOP

On 7th June 1968, the women workers at the Dagenham Ford factory go on strike over proposals to downgrade their skill set and subsequently their pay. This then highlights the massive inequality between men and women in the workplace when doing the same job.

Rita, an ordinary working class mum of two, and machinist for the plant, almost by accident finds   herself leading the fight for justice. The girls go on strike, and in a stand of unity the Ford machinists from the Liverpool plant also join the cause.

U.S executives of Ford try to fight the girls by ‘laying off’ the men and causing hardship for many families. Can the girls win their fight for equal pay  and justice in the workplace?

The musical is is heart-warming, uplifting and inspiring, It includes some classical British Banter, and a lot of comedy, uplifting musical numbers and some moments of sobriety. Made in Dagenham has something for everyone.
