Radium Girls by D.W. Gregory
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. Although adapted for the screen in 2018, this original stage version was inspired by the true story of the women and men who worked for the U.S. Radium Corporation in Orange, New Jersey. Radium Girls offers a wry, unflinching look at the peculiarly American obsessions with health, wealth, and the commercialization of science.
