Radium Girls ~ June 13-29, 2014

Radium girls clockWritten 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.

The Interrogation of Baruch de Spinoza at Talmud Torah NewJerusalemCongregation: Amsterdam, July 27, 1656

by David Ives
Directed by Gary Payne

Amsterdam’s Sephardic Jews have made a fatal arrangement with the city, agreeing to police their own community for unorthodox beliefs. Spinoza is accused of atheism and summoned to the synagogue to defend himself against the Jewish AND Christian hierarchy. In this eloquent and masterful drama, David Ives attempts to open the temple doors to listen in on a dispute whose philosophical and political echoes still reverberate today.
