Quotes & Highlights
Marnich…has an ear for warm, natural dialogue…Though never transcendent, the play’s linguistic honesty satisfies. — Time Out Chicago
These Shining Lives is nominated for three Joseph Jefferson Awards, including Best Production, Best Actress and Best Direction.
Melanie Marnich’s These Shining Lives chronicles the real lives of the women of the Radium Dial Company in Ottawa, Illinois. Catherine Donahue finds work painting watch faces at the Radium Dial Company in Ottawa. These Shining Lives follows the ten-year span between Catherine’s first days as a watch painter to her final days as she fought fiercely — though dying from brutal radium poisoning that painfully degenerated her bones — as part of a class action law suit to hold the Radium Dial Company accountable for its negligence.
