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.
