Fresh from a sell-out season at the Chichester Festival, The Pajama Game musical is coming to the West End for a strictly limited season from the 1st May to 13th September 2014 at the Shaftesbury theatre in London.

The Pajama Game is a musical comedy based on the novel 7½ Cents by Richard Bissell. The show in London is being directed by Richard Eyre and stars Joanna Riding and Michael Xavier.

The story surrounds an industrial dispute in a pajama factory, where the workers are demanding a pay increase. In the midst of the mayhem, love blossoms between Babe, the worker’s spoke person, and Sid, the handsome new factory superintendent.

The original Tony Award-winning Broadway production opened in 1954, and ran for nearly 3 years. The show was revived in 1973, and again in 2006 winning the Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical.

The original West End show opened at the London Coliseum in 1955 and ran for nearly two years starring legendary theatre greats Max Wall, Edmund Hockridge and Joy Nichols.

A strike is imminent at the Sleep-Tite Pajama Factory, where the workers are working under the cosh to churn out pajamas at a break-neck speed. A new factory head is appointed in the shape of out-of-towner, Sid Sorokin.

The Pajama Game musical is a real feel-good show suitable for all the family.

Tickets for the Pajama Game at the Shaftesbury theatre in London are on sale now.
