Inspired by a true story and based on the hit movie, Made in Dagenham is the uplifting new West End musical comedy about friendship, love and the importance of fighting for what is right.
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. As the girls’ inspiring journey gets bigger than anyone could have imagined, the pressure is too much for some, but can Rita keep up the fight and the happy home she’s worked so hard for?
Funny, touching and timeless, Made in Dagenham shows how ordinary people can do extraordinary things when they stand together.

Clare Macnaughton presents: I Hate Housework
Friday 26th May, 7:30pm
Clare Macnaughton started the blog ‘A Modern Military Mother’. She is considered an outspoken voice as a no baking, no singing, feminist military spouse. Clare’s caustic observations resonate with many married men and women.
She ghost wrote the Sunday Times bestseller ‘Battlefield Memoir’ and in 2012 self-published her short non-fiction book ‘A Modern Military Mother - Tales from the frontline’. For the last 3 years she has been a hit on the Wiltshire and Hampshire WI speaker circuit, although due to the nature of the audience couldn’t speak her ruder material!
This test gig is to try out on a new audience, the ruder material of stand up comedy, prose and poetry that she has written over the last decade. Laughs out loud guaranteed!
This event has an age restriction of 16+
Tickets: Adults £8
