Historic women’s play comes to Hamp
at RE-CREATION sept 2nd

Some of the most profound changes for the better in our lives are forged by pioneers over many years, through separate but linked events. These events are the ‘long revolutions’ that at the time seem interesting but, looking back, have permanently raised us up to a higher level of civilisation. The pioneers do not have to be politicians, scientists or academics. They can be trades unionists."

The sewing machinists from Fords Dagenham, the Belfast cleaners, the Yorkshire dinner ladies and Liverpool cooks were working-class women. But they were making ‘herstory!’

This was the Equal Pay struggle!

The Mikron Theatre Company, in its only west country performance, are coming to the Recreation Centre, on the Hamp Estate in Bridgwater on Thursday September 2nd to tell this inspiring tale.
Set against the turbulent industrial and social background from the 1960’s through the next twenty years, the play chronicles the struggle of working women against the might of a discriminatory establishment.
Fast paced, inventive and a whole lot of fun with some wonderful characters, this Mikron show, with music, is an unusual and exciting theatrical event.

See you there!”

Striking the Balance’,
Thursday 2nd September. 8pm The Recreation Centre, Rhode Lane, Hamp, Bridgwater.
£8 ( Concessions-including trade union card and Bridgwater Arts Centre members-£6.)
