“Ideal World” – Made In Dagenham

Music: David Arnold   Lyrics: Richard Thomas

With determination and persistence, an ideal world is possible.  Labor Party politician and Parliament member Barbara Castle delivers this sassy number to a group of female workers on strike when they meet in her office in this thoroughly British musical.  The Ford sewing machinists’ strike of 1968 documented in this show eventually caused the Equal Pay Act of 1970.  Today, it’s your turn to go out and make the world a better place.
