Its EXTRAORDINARY what ORDINARY people can do!

Inspired by a true story and based on the hit movie, Made in Dagenham, is the uplifting new British musical comedy about friendship, love and the importance of fighting for what is right.

Essex 1968 and Rita O’Grady, like millions of other working mums, is just trying to get her husband out of bed, kids off to school and get work at the Ford factory on time.

But when her job is downgraded to ‘unskilled’ and she and her female colleagues realise they are getting paid less than their male counterparts, Rita finds her voice and leads the women on a trailblazing battle for equal pay, taking on the unions, Fords top brass and the Government.
