About the Play:

In 1926, radium was a miracle cure, Madame Curie was an international celebrity and luminous watches were the latest 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 fights for her day in court. Her chief adversary is her former employer, Arthur Roeder, an idealistic man who cannot bring himself to believe that the same element that shrinks tumors could have anything to do with the terrifying rash of illnesses among his employees.
