Thanks to cast, crew, volunteers, and audience for their support 

as we told this important story.



Is it tragic exploitation, faulty science, or rampant consumerism? You decide. We give voice to the amazing true story of the Radium Girls

 

In 1926 radium was a miracle cure, Madame Curie an international celebrity, and luminous watches all the rage—until the girls who painted them began to fall ill with a mysterious disease.  Radium Girls traces the efforts of Grace Fryer, a dial painter, as she battles the U.S. Radium Corporation and her own family and friends, who fear that her campaign for justice will backfire.
