9 to 5ís outrageous and hilarious story of friendship and revenge is set in the late 1970s, an era long before computers, cell phones, and political correctness, when women in the office were clerks or secretaries, at their male bosses' beck and call, typing and filing, getting the tea and seldom seriously considered for more senior roles.
At breaking point over the way they are treated by their sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot boss, Violet, Judy and Doralee each reveal their fantasy for getting rid of him. Then, by a hilarious twist of fate, they find themselves holding the boss hostage whilst they give the office a makeover, taking control of the company that had always kept them down.
Based on the hit 1980 comedy film starring Dolly Parton, Jane Fonda and Lily Tomkin, this energetic stage version features a video introduction by Dolly herself, plus her Tony and Grammy nominated score that includes the iconic title song 9 to 5, the ballad Let Love Grow, the empowering Get Out and Stay Out and the stirring anthem Shine Like the Sun.
