Axminster Musical Theatre’s latest production is due to open this evening.
This year marks the 50-year anniversary of real events that happened in Dagenham in 1968, which are the inspiration for Made in Dagenham.
Rita’s a busy mum, loving wife and hard working Ford factory employee.
But Rita and her female colleagues find themselves working long hours for far less money than the men.
Finding a voice she never knew she had, Rita leads the women on a trailblazing battle for equal pay, taking on the unions, Ford’s top brass and the Government.
Inspired by a true story, Made in Dagenham is an uplifting musical comedy about how ordinary people can do extraordinary things.
Axminster Musical Theatre’s will be staging this very British musical from this evening (Tuesday, November 13) to Saturday, November 17, at 7.30pm, at Axminster Guildhall with a matinee on Saturday at 2.30pm.
Tickets can be obtained from The Archway Bookshop, on 01297 33595, or at www.ticketsource.co.uk
