Made in Dagenham

Following the success of 2018’s Spamalot, Westwood Musical Society return with their new production...

Inspired by a true story and based on the hit movie, Made in Dagenham is the new British comedy musical about friendship, love and the importance of fighting for what is right. It follows the fortunes of Ford factory machinist Rita O’Grady and the girls from the Dagenham car plant and their quest for equality for women. With a laugh-out-loud script by Richard Bean (One Man, Two Guvnors, and The Hypocrite) it was dubbed ‘The best British musical since Billy Elliot’ by The Stage when it hit the West End in 2014. It’s got Essex Girls. On strike. Singing. Winning. An American Ford boss out to bust the strike. Harold Wilson. Barbara Castle. A Ford Cortina. Dance routines with a Sixties vibe. Husbands. Kids. Suffering. Supporting. Songs to make you cry. Songs to make you ‘Stand Up’ and shout for your rights. This is more than just a musical – it’s an uplifting human journey. It really happened. It changed History. It’s emotional, it’s funny. You’ll love it! Warning – strong language!
