The acting was terrific, and the story moved along very well. I would recommend attending a performance.

More Information


In the 1920s, The Radium Dial Corporation employed some 4,000 girls and produced watches with brightly lit dials. These were jobs for girls that had never worked before. They didn’t just make money; they made friends. But the radioactive paint they were using made them terribly ill. These Shining Lives tells the story of four women who rejoiced in their new-found camaraderie and found the courage for each other to stand up to the employers that endangered their lives.
