Made in Dagenham is based on the true story of the 1967 sewing machinists strike at the Ford Dagenham plant where 187 underpaid women machinists demanded equal pay.
Characters include Harold Wilson the Prime Minister at the time, Rita O’Grady the shop steward, Mr Tooley the boss of Ford in America and the factory workers.
We were delighted to provide costumes for the recent university of Manchester production of Made in Dagenham, directed by Adam Philpott and performed at the Arden Theatre.
Our pinstripe suits for the dancing civil servants, American footballers and sparkly suits for the posh car event came to life on stage.
Wonderful songs include ‘Busy Woman’, ‘Everybody Out’ and ‘Stand Up’
