“Equal positions, with equal pay!”

Through powerful, modern songs and humorous action, Made in Dagenham tells the story of the conflict at Ford’s Dagenham car plant in 1968.

Be inspired as ordinary Essex wife and mum, Rita O’Grady, leads the girls in the stitching room in a battle against the might of Ford and the corruption of the Union.

How will the men around them react? Will they gain the support of politicians and the TUC? Can Rita keep up the fight and the happy home she’s worked so hard for?

Inspired by a true story and based on the hit movie, this relevant musical features songs such as the rousing Stand Up, the understated The Letter, and the rallying Everybody Out.

Funny, touching and timeless, Made in Dagenham shows how ordinary people can do extraordinary things when they stand together.

*Please note: Some scenes contain swearing representative of the authentic 1968 factory setting.
