Set in the swinging sixties and based on true events the show follows factory girl Rita O'Grady as she becomes an unlikely feminist icon.
Devoted wife and loving mother, Ford machinist, Rita always puts her family first and ungrudgingly gets on with her work in the factory to make ends meet. But her life is about to change forever... Unexpectedly, Rita must lead her colleagues in a battle against the might of Ford and the corruption of the Union. But in doing this Rita must make a choice she thought she'd never have to make: Should she keep up the fight against Ford and risk losing everything else? With the unlikeliest of allies and her friends' unwavering support, Rita draws on strength she never knew she had and realises that some things in life are truly worth fighting for.

Like the film, the show is set in Essex in the late 1960's and tells the story of mother and Ford factory worker Rita O'Grady.
Faced with the news that women working in the sewing room are facing a pay cut, Rita summons all her strength and decides to fight back. As the fight gets tougher, with the girls trying to take on business giant Ford as well as their own union, will Rita be able to hold on to her family life and her crusade?

The musical is based on the 2010 film Made in Dagenham that principally followed the main character of Rita O'Grady, who acted as the spokesperson for a group of female workers at Ford's Dagenham plant, who go on strike to fight the inequality that becomes apparent when women workers were to be paid less as they were classed as unskilled.

In 1968 Dagenham, young wife and mother Rita O'Grady works with 186 other women as machinists for Ford UK, sewing car seat covers - for a wage well below male rates of pay.
She gets all the women to go on strike and establishes the principle worldwide of equal pay for women.

Made in Dagenham centers on Rita O'Grady (played winningly by the Happy-Go-LuckySally Hawkins), a female machinist at the Ford factory in Dagenham.
She and her colleagues sew together the seats for the cars on the line. When an executive order re-grades their jobs as unskilled - giving them the same low wages as the teenaged boys who sweep the factory floors - the women demand the grade of skilled workers and the pay raise attached to that title. When they are nonchalantly rebuffed by upper management, Rita is encouraged by her supervisor and friend Albert (the brilliant and heartbreaking Bob Hoskins) to organize and go on strike.
