Made in Dagenham
Based on the 2010 film staring Sally Hawkins, "Made in Dagenham" is a brand new musical comedy starring Gemma Arterton (James Bond Quantum of Solace, Tamara Drewe). Like the film, the show is set in Essex in the late 1960’s and tells the story of mother and Ford factory worker Rita O’Grady. Faced with the news that women working in the sewing room are facing a pay cut, Rita summons all her strength and decides to fight back. As the fight gets tougher, with the girls trying to take on business giant Ford as well as their own union, will Rita be able to hold on to her family life and her crusade? This inspirational show promises to be both funny and touching in equal measures.
Made in Dagenham features music by BAFTA and Grammy award-winning composer David Arnold (James Bond Series) and lyrics by Olivier Award winner Richard Thomas (Jerry Springer The Opera). The show boasts a script by Richard Bean (One Man Two Guvnors) and will be directed by multi-award winner Rupert Goold (American Psycho the Musical.)
