Made in Dagenham The Musical, based on the hit British film, comes to the Adelphi Theatre this September.
Coming to London’s Adelphi Theatre this Autumn 2014, Made in Dagenham is a brand new stage musical based on the smash-hit 2010 British movie.
The show features a book by Richard Bean (One Man, Two Guvnors) based on the original screenplay by William Ivory, music by David Arnold (Bond films) who penned the film’s original score, and lyrics by Richard Thomas (Jerry Springer The Opera).
Based on the real-life story of the 1968 strike at the Ford Dagenham car plant, where female workers walked out in protest against sexual discrimination, the movie starred Sally Hawkins as lead character Rita, plus Bob Hoskins and Andrea Riseborough.
Stage Entertainment are producing the show.
