Fall Play 2019
In 1926, radium was a miracle cure, Madame Curie an international celebrity, and luminous watches the latest rage—until the girls who painted them began to fall ill with a mysterious disease.
Inspired by a true story, Radium Girls traces the efforts of Grace Fryer, a dial painter, as she fights for her day in court. Her chief adversary is her former employer, Arthur Roeder, who is an idealistic man who cannot bring himself to believe that the same element that shrinks tumors could have anything to do with the terrifying rash of illnesses among his employees. As the case goes on, however, Grace finds herself battling not just with the U.S. Radium Corporation, but with her own family and friends, who fear that her campaign for justice will backfire.
Written with warmth and humor, Radium Girls is a fast-moving and includes a variety of characters. Called a "powerful" and "engrossing" drama by critics, Radium Girls offers a wry, unflinching examination of the commercialization of science and the twin American obsessions with the pursuit of health and wealth making this original drama from DW Gregory a continually relevant and entertaining.
