The Factory Girls

The Factory Girls 
Written by Frank McGuinness

The Factory Girls tells the story of five women facing the threat of redundancy, who stage a lock-in in a shirt factory in Co. Donegal. As their protest continues the woman learn more about each other and themselves as they explore their anger, courage and compassion.

Frank McGuinness’s The Factory Girls serves as a bold statement of the harsh reality that prejudice and injustice actions take place in work forces where women and men are exhausting themselves in service to businesses in order to survive. The characters guide the audience through a heart-wrenching story of uniting as a group 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.
