“These Shining Lives” chronicles the true story of women working at the Radium Dial Company in the 1920s. Lured by good wages, these women painted watch dials with luminous, radium-based paint, unaware of the devastating health consequences. As they fall ill, the play follows their fight for justice against a corporation that values profit over the lives of its employees, bravely illuminating a dark chapter in American labor history and exploring themes of corporate negligence, female resilience, and the enduring need for workers’ rights.
