The Gut Girls

Written by Sarah Daniels - Directed by Sylvie Barham

The Gut Girls’ by Sarah Daniels is set in the “gutting” sheds at a cattle market in late Victorian England, in Deptford. This incisive drama shows working class women at the bottom of the heap; raunchy and with language which would ‘floor a horse’ the gut girls earn more in a week that those in service do in a year. When socially conscious “do-gooders’ from the ‘upper classes’ seek to make their unseemly work illegal, the “gut girls” are forced to other seek options…
Contains strong language and scenes of mild violence.
