Made in Dagenham

Battle Light Opera Group transfer their sell-out production to The Stables’ stage after performing to rapturous audiences in May.

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.

‘Made In Dagenham’ is a funny, touching and timeless tale about ordinary people doing extraordinary things when they stand together. BLOG’s final performances of this hugely popular show have sold out – but you can call the box office on (01424) 423221 to be added to our waiting list in case returns become available.
