Made in Dagenham is drawn from the real-life sewing machinists strike at the Ford factory in Dagenham, Essex. The strike was influential in thepassing of the Equal Pay Act of 1970.
The musical focuses on the leader of the strike, Rita O’Grady (played by Amy McLeod), as she encourages the women to walk out. However when Rita’s husband Eddie (played by Stuart Murphy) is laid off from the factory, cracks begin to show in the women’s solidarity. Risking her marriage and friendships, Rita continues her fight for equality and gives a rousing speech at the Trade Union Conference, leading to the passing of equal pay within the union.
The 35 strong cast gave a rousing performance each evening with a mixture of hilarity, toe-tapping music as well as tackling serious issues.

S3 pupils from Clyde Valley High School worked with pupils from Orchard Primary School in an entrepreneur workshop run by Entrepreneur Me. Pupils from Primary five and six were split into six groups of eight, then the third year pupils interviewed each of them for a role in the group and decided who would be best suited for each role. The groups were assigned jobs such as Managing Director, Personnel Manager, Quality Control Leader, Finance Manager, Sales Leader, Production Controller, Designer, Buyer, Banker or Shopkeeper. Each group was given £25 to start with, which could be supplemented by a loan or profits made by selling the things they created. They were given a list of the things they were to make and a price list of everything at the shop and if they needed more supplies they had to buy them at the shop. The group with the most profit won the challenge and a further prize was awarded for the group who worked the best together.
S3 pupils Chloe Lawson, Rhian Barr, Lily McBride and Lauren Rankin attended the Information Day for the Dragons’ Lair competition run by North Lanarkshire Council. Dragons’ Lair is an initiative aimed at encouraging innovation and entrepreneurship in North Lanarkshire’s young people. It seeks to introduce them to the world of business, its importance to the economy and as a possible career option they may not have considered. Pupils have been asked to think of an innovative business idea and create a business plan, which will then be submitted to advisors from Business Gateway who scored them and short-listed to a final six.
