Full of heart and humour: a unique production of poetry, theatre and music. As Never Before!
A poignant tribute to the resilient and passionate ‘Mill Girls’. Join the Mill Girls: Rosie, Sadie, Betty and Agnes as they celebrate the lives of the thousands of woman who worked in Paisley’s great thread mills in the 19th and 20th centuries, through captivating poetry, theatre and music.
Paisley’s Mill Girls were unique with their swagger and radicalism: ‘Up the dancing’ in their finery, protesting for equal pay, striding out in their thousands, ‘making a whole town stop’.
Theirs’ is a familiar story taking its place alongside the great mill towns of
Britain and the rich social history of working people.
From factory floor and war efforts to friendships and love, it is a show that
is comic and tragic, defiant and loving, always dramatic and shimmering
