These Shining Lives by Melanie Marnich
13 to 20 February 2021

The play is based on a true story about four women working for a company that used radium compound to paint watch faces.

The health of the women gives cause for concern but the employer will not accept that there is any danger and even suggests that the work has health benefits. When radium poisoning is diagnosed the women face a battle when they file a lawsuit against the company.

A leading attorney accepts the case for free and the result is in the balance. The consequences after the case are even more disturbing.
