The remarkable story of Jayaben Desai the inspirational leader of the 1976-78 Grunwick Film Processing Factory Strike.

She brought the issue of workplace exploitation and racism to the fore, challenged the perception of Asian women being inherently passive and docile, whilst having the measure of the most brutish and charmless of her managers.

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.

“Rollercoaster... Short, sharp scenes... make us laugh, feel and think... Her powerful story, powerfully told.”

Clare Brennan (Observer)

“Inventive... Patel captures not only her tenacity but also her vulnerability amid the turmoil of male dominated trade unions.”

Paul Vale (The Stage)
