Radium Girls ~ June 13-29, 2014

Written by D.W. Gregory

Directed by Gary Payne

In 1926, radium was a miracle cure, Madame Curie an international celebrity, and luminous watches the latest rage—until the girls who painted them began to fall ill with a mysterious disease. Inspired by a true story, Radium Girls traces the efforts of Grace Fryer, a dial painter, as she fights for her day in court. Grace finds herself battling not just with the U.S. Radium Corporation, but with her own family and friends, who fear that her campaign for justice will backfire. Written with warmth and humor, Radium Girls is a fast-moving and riveting evening of theater. It offers a wry, unflinching look at the peculiarly American obsessions with health, wealth, and the commercialization of science.
