Mikron Theatre: Striking the Balance
Set against the turbulent backdrop of the 1960’s, 70’s and 80’s, three working women take on the might of a discriminatory establishment.
Fast-paced, inventive and a whole lot of fun, this new Mikron show, complete with original music, takes you on a moving journey, introducing a host of colourful characters – including special guest appearances from Labour’s Red Queen and the Iron Lady herself.
Inspired by the heroic stories of machinists from Dagenham, cleaners from Belfast, dinner ladies from Yorkshire and cooks from Liverpool, Striking the Balance chronicles the continuing struggle for Equal Pay.
