Everybody out! Made in Dagenham to be revived with actor-musician production

The Stage have announced that Made in Dagenham is being revived with a new actor-musician production.

Directed by Douglas Rintoul, the show will run at the Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch between 16th August and 17th September and at the New Wolsey Theatre Ipswich from 21st September to 15th October 2016.

Speaking to The Stage, Rintoul revealed the production will be a "stripped back" version of the show. He also said: "It’s great to be the first to really reshape it. The West End production was vast, but I’m really excited about stripping it back to the very core storytelling,"

Design will be by Hayley Grindle with musical direction from Ben Goddard. Made in Dagenham marks the first show announced from Rintoul’s inaugural season as artistic director of the Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch.

Made in Dagenham has book by Richard Bean, music by David Arnold and lyrics by Richard Thomas. The show premiered in the West End in November 2014 and closed five months later. The original production starred Gemma Arterton and was directed by Rupert Goold.
