Guts
Hull Truck Theatre & Hull Maritime present

Guts! The Musical

  • Written by Maureen Lennon
  • Directed by Tom Saunders

A community production created with Hull Maritime

The year is 1984. 15 women in a fish packing factory in Hull are about to make history....

In the decade that brought us the Walkman, MTV, chicken nuggets and shoulder pads, something else was brewing: A revolution about equal pay.

Following a dedicated Union Rep on his fight, this is a whirlwind re-telling of the groundbreaking case which changed the equalities act in the UK forever. Demanding equal pay for equal work, should be easy, right? Wrong!

This story is an important part of our city's rich maritime history, which goes way beyond the Headscarf Revolutionaries.

An upbeat and uplifting tale about justice, the power of female friendship and... fish... with a whole load of hilarity and musical joy thrown in for good measure.

Join us as the whole community come together to present this highly entertaining farcical drama which is based on a true story.

Made in Dagenham meets Barbie (The Movie).
