The Matchgirls

The Matchgirls
The match-cutters finally rebel against working conditions in which young girls had their jaws rotted away by phosphorus, and discipline was maintained by a system of crippling fines and sanctions. This was a grim episode, but not many minutes of the play are allowed to pass before the natural ebullience of the traditional Cockney sparrow helps to create sparkling entertainment which warms the heart. This story is all about the humour, determination and solidarity of the women working in dreadful conditions but energised by the hope that they have the right to a better life for themselves and their families.
