Upper School Fall Play - Radium Girls

Bowen Arts Studios
Contact: Mike Dolan
In 1926, radium was a miracle cure, Madame Curie an international celebrity, and luminous watches the latest rage—until the girls who painted them began to fall ill with a mysterious disease. Inspired by a true story, Radium Girls traces the efforts of Grace Fryer, a dial painter, as she fights for her day in court.

The play offers an unflinching look at the peculiarly American obsessions with health, wealth, and the commercialization of science.
