Based on the true story of the dial painters who made labor history.
The story: 1926. Radium is a miracle cure, Madame Curie an international celebrity, and luminous watches the latest rage. Until the girls who paint those watch dials begin to die. Based on the true story of the women and men who worked for the U.S. Radium Corporation in Orange, N.J., and originally written for nine actors to double into 38 roles. Radium Girls is a fast-paced stage play; a wry examination of the commercialization of science and the twin American obsessions with the pursuit of health and wealth.
