By D.W. Gregory
Inspired by a true story, Radium Girls by D.W. Gregory follows the women who worked painting the luminescent watch dials in the 1920’s. While radium was being hailed as a miracle cure by some, it was causing mysterious illnesses in others. The afflicted workers must stand up to big business, medical practitioners, family, and friends to bring this issue to light in this moving and impactful drama.
Performed: February 28 and March 1 at 7:00pm at Washington Center (160 E Washington Street)
