Essex 1968. Like millions of other working women, each morning Rita
O’Grady is 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 forever when it’s announced that the girls in the stitching room
of Ford’s Dagenham car plant will have their pay grade dropped to
‘unskilled’. Quickly 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 girls’
inspiring journey gets bigger than anyone could have imagined, the
pressure is 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.
Starring Gemma Arterton (The Duchess of Malfi at the Globe Theatre, Quantum of Solace and Tamara Drewe), and directed by multi-award-winning Rupert Goold (Artistic Director of the Almeida Theatre, American Psycho, Oliver!, Enron), Made in Dagenham has a book by Richard Bean (One Man, Two Guvnors, The Heretic, England People Very Nice), music by BAFTA and Grammy award -winning composer David Arnold (James Bond series, Hot Fuzz, and Sherlock) and lyrics from Olivier Award winner Richard Thomas (Jerry Springer The Opera, The Royal Opera’s Anna Nicole and Shoes at Sadler’s Wells).
Ford Motor Company Limited went on to effect changes in its
employment practises and is now used as an example of a good practice
