Rafters Theatre, Dutcher Hall

In 1926, radium was a miracle cure, Madame Curie an international celebrity and “glow-in-the-dark” watches the latest rage --- until the girls who painted the dials began to fall ill with a mysterious disease. Based on true events, the story focuses on one of the girls as she fights for her day in court.  This moving and inspiring play offers an unflinching look at the American obsession with health, wealth and the commercialization of science.

A “powerful” and “engrossing” drama.
