WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Spring, 1888. Whoever heard of women going on strike? This evocative musical follows the Matchgirls and their struggle for safer working conditions, better wages and no more fines. From the age of 12, girls worked 14 hours each day at the notorious Bryant & May’s match factory in London’s East End.
