The Factory Girls tells the story of five women facing the threat of redundancy, who stage a lock-in in a shirt factory in County Donegal. As their protest continues, the woman learn more about themselves and each other as they explore their anger, courage and compassion.
Frank McGuinness’s The Factory Girls serves as a bold statement to the harsh reality of prejudice and injustice that can take place in the work place. The characters guide the audience through a heart-wrenching story of unity for the benefit of all and standing as individuals to contribute for the larger group. Each of the women go through moments of self-discovery and exercise defiance against a larger oppressive power.
