“These Shining Lives” is inspired by the actions of real women in the 1920s. It tells the largely forgotten story of the “Radium Girls.” Catherine Donohue and her coworkers worked in factories painting glow in the dark watch dials, only to later be diagnosed with severe radiation poisoning. This play chronicles the strength and determination of these women considered expendable in their day. The play is not a tragedy but a triumphant celebration of these women’s battles to win against a company that lied to them. Come cheer these heroines on.
