Greasepaint Productions presents The Factory Girls By Frank McGuinness Friday 25th March 2011 to Saturday 26th March 2011 8pm

The livelihood of five women in a shirt factory in Buncrana, County Donegal is threatened by a recession. Desperate times call for desperate measures and surprising even themselves, these five women find the strength and spirit to stand up for what they believe to be right.

With rapier sharp wit and huge heart, these women pull together as one and take on the might of big business that is just beginning to rear its ugly head. As their protest continues the woman learn more about each other and themselves as they explore their anger, courage and compassion.

Frank McGuiness' first play, The Factory Girls premiered almost twenty years ago. He took inspiration from his grandmother, his mother and aunts who all worked in the local shirt factories. This stirring, funny and moving play celebrates the strength and vivacity of Irish working women in the face of adversity.

Greasepaint Productions is a voluntary amateur community arts group which is based in Buncrana, Inishowen, County Donegal.
