MADE (work in progress) – Target Theatre
This work-in-progress sharing is the culmination of two stages of development for this exciting new piece of work that has been created by Target Theatre Company.
MADE tells the story of millions of workers thousands of miles away in Bangladesh who toil to make the clothes we wear. Day in day out these mothers, daughters, sisters, fathers, sons and brothers sweat behind machines to make the fast fashion we buy on the British high street. Who are the people who make our clothes? What are their hopes, dreams and fears? What is the story behind the shirt on your back?
Based on the lives of real people we met in Bangladesh, MADE explores the parallels between the east and the west, and how our need for cheap clothing affects millions of people on the other side of the world.
This deeply personal and current play explores the rise of feminism within a country that is notoriously conservative; the economic impact our hunger for fast fashion is having on developing nations across the globe; and the harsh realities of living in poverty at the hands of the world’s demands within a capitalist society. It tells the personal, individual stories of the people involved in the garments industry – from workers to buyers; from the factory managers to us, the consumers – and scrutinises how the choices we make as consumers affect the lives of people thousands of miles away.
