The Factory Girls
Award-winning playwright Frank McGuinness (Someone Who’ll Watch Over Me and Observe the Sons of Ulster Marching Towards the Somme) first came to prominence with his play The Factory Girls – originally produced by The Abbey Theatre.
Dublin in 1982. The Factory Girls tells the story of five women in a shirt factory in Co. Donegal, who stage a lock-in when faced with losing their jobs. 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.
We are delighted to bring The Factory Girls to the MAC following its run at the Derry ~ Londonderry City of Culture 2013.
By far one of the most professional and poignant plays I have seen, The Factory Girls is a must see for all lovers of theatre
