I'd never been to the Stoneham Theater, so didn't know what level of experience we'd have. The play sounded interesting, if only from a historical viewpoint. What a surprise to find excellent acting and set design, a fascinating drama, a warm inviting theater space---and you can even bring the reasonably priced beverages into the show.
All in all, a delightful evening!
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.
