Made in Dagenham

The 2010 film received several award nominations, and the following year, it was announced that a musical was under development. Based on historical events of the Ford Dagenham strike of the swinging 60s, the show follows factory girl Rita O’Grady who must balance her role at home as she becomes an unlikely feminist icon in the battle for equal pay. It’s a battle that strains her relationship with her family to the limit, but Rita and her friends prove that ordinary people can achieve extraordinary things when they stand together.

Bought to Theatre Royal by local group Suffolk Young People’s Theatre, with outrageous comedy and rousing numbers, this show is set to delight and inspire.

Made in Dagenham is presented by Suffolk Young People’s Theatre. It will be at the Theatre Royal, Bury between 26th-29th July. 

Tickets: £8.50 – £21.50. For more information or to book visit
