Inspired by historic figures and events from 1917 through the 1920s. The discovery of radium was initially heralded as a miracle element with all sorts of applications, from health tonic and cancer cure to military use in glow-in-the-dark paint for instruments in the trenches of WWI. Later it was a domestic novelty for glow-in-the-dark clock faces and wristwatches. This more skilled factory work was highly sought-after by young women, who pointed the very fine brushes between their lips. When some of the girls began to die lingering and painful deaths, questions arose which industry leaders did not want answered. Radium Girls follows the fictionalized legal battle of one woman to see justice done, for herself and her dead friends.
This drama is fast-paced, humorous, suspenseful and poignant. It requires a high level of acting skill, concentration and energy, as the action moves between three distinct stage areas, multiple levels and 28 scenes.
