Tic Toc

Women’s Archive Wales pioneering oral history project ‘Voices from the Factory Floor’ recorded the memories of 200 women who worked in factories the length and breadth of Wales, but have since closed, including our own ‘Tick Tock’ factory in Ystradgynlais.

Those memories inspired the making of Tic Toc, a brand new musical paying homage to the women factory workers of Wales. The show is full of stories of lives led to the full, the joys of camaraderie, tales of life long close friendships and triumphs over hardships… helped along with the women’s courage and love of dance and music…

Tic Toc follows a close-knit group of friends who worked together in a factory. They sang, laughed and danced together finding strength in friendship while around them the world was changing. Then a rift developed in that friendship. And now a reunion’s been planned… and one of them hasn’t been invited…

From ‘Voices’ to the Stage | O’r ‘Lleisiau’ i’r Llwyfan:
