The Millennium Forum continues its season of in-house productions with a brand new version of Frank McGuinness’ ‘The Factory Girls’ which will open at the Civic Theatre on 15th May for a four day run.

‘The Factory Girls’ tells the story of five women who stage a lock-in at a shirt factory in Co. Donegal when faced with the threat of redundancy. Ellen, Una, Vera, Rosemary and Rebecca are five strong and independent women who take on the boss and the union. Described as a truly realistic play filled with humour, charm, fine acting and staging; these “girls” may never get back their jobs, but their brief adventure has brought each of them the insight that will give them the courage to soldier on.

Frank McGuinness initially came to prominence with The Factory Girls, first produced in The AbbeyTheatre, Dublin.

The Forum’s new production is directed by Caitriona McLaughlin and features a host of talented Irish actors including Lucia McAnespie, Noelle Brown, Stella McCusker, Kerrie O’Sullivan, Cathleen Bradley, Sean Donegan and Howard Teale.

The Factory Girls’ performs at the Civic Theatre, Tallaght from Wed 15th to Sat 18th May.Tickets are now available from the Civic Theatre Box Office. Telephone 01 4627477 or visit for bookings.
