Made In Dagenham
The Questors Theatre, Mattock Lane, Ealing W5 5BQ
When the women’s jobs at the Ford factory in Dagenham, Essex, are regraded to unskilled, but with less pay than the men on the same grade, Rita O’Grady rallies the women to strike for equal pay.
Initially shunned by their bosses, news of the strike eventually reaches the head of Ford USA, who lays-off the men at the factory. Families and friends become pitted against each other, and the British Government is forced to intervene.
Made in Dagenham is based on the true story of the 1968 sewing machinists’ strike that influenced the passing of the Equal Pay Act of 1970.
There is some swearing.
