Townsend Theatre Productions' new play, written by Neil Gore, is premiering at the Working Class Movement Library.

We Are The Lions, Mr. Manager! is the remarkable story of Jayaben Desai, the inspirational leader of the 1976-78 Grunwick Strike. She not only stood up for workers’ rights and against oppression with selfless dedication, but with her steadfast resolve she turned the dispute into a national movement for human rights and dignity inspiring future generations.

A trailer for the production can be viewed here.

Tickets should be booked in advance here, price £12.50 (£9.50 early bird, £10.50 concessions).
