Factory Girls Poster

The Factory Girls  Splódar Theatre Company  presents “The Factory Girls” by Frank Mc Guinness, a story of the harsh working life of women in a shirt factory in Donegal in 1982.

Faced with a threat to their jobs, they take matters into their own hands and decide not to be beaten down but rather to stand up against the odds.

On the 100 year anniversary of the movement towards women gaining the right to vote, this is a timely production. The author wrote that he ‘wanted to write a play that celebrated the working class culture of women in the part of Donegal I grew up in’  and his characters are lovingly and warmly crafted, based on people he knew including his family.

We witness relationships build between the women and the personal growth of individual characters. The plays witty dialogue performed by a superb cast under the directorship of Prin Duignan makes “The Factory Girls” a show not to be missed.

Splódar is the resident drama company in the Glens Centre, Manorhamilton, Co. Leitrim. The company was established when the centre opened in 1995. Our principal objective is the production of high quailty drama in Irish and English. Under the name ‘The Glens Players’ (Aisteoirí na nGleannta) plays have been staged by writers such as Brian Friel, Frank McGuinness, Tom Murphy, Thornton Wilder, Vincent Woods, Cathal Ó Searcaigh and Garrison Keillor.
The company was given the name Splódar in 2007 to emphasize the Irish language policy of the group. Irish language productions to date include Damhsa ag Lughnasa, Sadhbh, Salóme and  Leannáin (Buaiteoirí) as well as a re-working of Glantacháin Earraigh by Máirtín Ó Cadhain.
