Why See The Pajama Game?

Sleep-Tite Pajama Factory

Usually a tiptop model of efficiency, there's something odd going on at the Sleep-Tite Pajama Factory. Based on the book "7 1/2 Cents" by Richard Bissell "The Pajama Game" got its first adaption for the stage when it lit up Broadway in 1954, since then "The Pajama Game" has been played on stage across the world and even got its own movie in 1957.

What's The Pajama Game about?

Babe Williams, the trouble-making head of the union grievance committee is campaigning for a 7 and half cent pay rise for the workers in the pajama factory. However the management and new superintendent Sid Sorokin are trying to squash Williams and her pay-rise campaign.

The environment starts to get a bit steamy when Sorokin falls head-over-heels in love for Babe. Sparks begin to fly when management and workers are pitted against each other and a battle between the sexes ensues.

Top tunes that you'll know from the show include "Steam Heat" and "Hernando's Hideaway".
