New Venture Players are proud to present this new British musical comedy which is inspired by a true story and based on the hit movie, Made in Dagenham. The time is 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’.
Rita leads her friends in a battle against the might of Ford and the corruption of the Union supposed to protect them. This touching story shows how ordinary people can do extraordinary things when they stand together and fight for what is right!
