The Millennium Forum continues its season of in-house productions with a brand new version of Frank McGuinness’ ‘The Factory Girls’ which will open at the City Factory next Wednesday, 24th April for a four day run before embarking on an extensive national tour.
‘The Factory Girls’ tells the story of five women who stage a lock-in at a shirt factory in Co. Donegal when faced with the threat of redundancy. Ellen, Una, Vera, Rosemary and Rebecca are five strong and independent women who take on the boss and the union. Described as a truly realistic play filled with humour, charm, fine acting and staging; these “girls” may never get back their jobs, but their brief adventure has brought each of them the insight that will give them the courage to soldier on.
Frank McGuinness initially came to prominence with The Factory Girls, first produced in The Abbey Theatre, Dublin.
The Forum’s new production is directed by Caitriona McLaughlin and features a host of talented Irish actors including Lucia McAnespie, Noelle Brown, Stella McCusker, Kerrie O’Sullivan, Cathleen Bradley, Sean Donegan and Howard Teale.
‘The Factory Girls’ performs at the City Factory from Wednesday, 24th to Saturday, 27th April before embarking on an extensive national tour.
Tickets are now available from the Millennium Forum Box Office. Telephone 71 264455 or visit www.millenniumforum.co.uk for bookings.
