2022-2023 Season Performances:

These Shining Lives
by Melanie Marnich
directed by Jennifer Hunter
September 1-10, 2022 
Patsy Miller Studio Theatre


"These Shining Lives" revolves around the real-life circumstances of women in the 1920s who worked in a watch factory painting watch faces with glowing radium-rich paint. While the characters and company in "These Shining Lives" are fictitious, the story of the Radium Girls and the toxic and deadly levels of radium poisoning of over 4,000 factory workers is true. The real-life Radium Girls took their company to court and achieved a long-lasting victory over corporations with poor workplace conditions and worker's compensation that is still in effect today.
