These Shining Lives: Inspired by a True Story
"This isn't a fairy tale, though it starts like one. It's not a tragedy, though it ends like one." The Radium Dial Company hired thousands of women to hand paint watch and clock faces, using a luminescent paint made partially from the radioactive element radium, which was being hailed at the time for its amazing healing properties. But the workers weren't told about the dangers. More than just casualties, Catherine Wolfe Donohue and her friends fight fiercely to hold the company accountable for its negligence. These Shining Lives is based on the true story of the 1920s & '30s "Radium Girls" from Ottawa, Illinois. See it at the Piven Theatre in Evanston.
