In 1926, radium was a miracle cure, and luminous watches the latest rage—until the girls who painted them began to fall ill.

Inspired by a true story, Radium Girls traces the efforts of a watch dial painter as she fights for her day in court. Written with warmth and humor, Radium Girls offers a wry, unflinching look at the American obsessions with health, wealth, and the commercialization of science.

Radium Girls is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York.
