Rouse, Ye Women!
Wednesday 13 March - Saturday 16 March
Through rousing traditional songs and moving ballads, Townsend Theatre Productions reveal the story of the women chainmakers of Cradley Heath in the West Midlands.
In 1910 they began a successful ten-week strike, led by the charismatic union campaigner Mary Macarthur, to more than double their earnings and establish the principle of a national minimum wage.
