The women earn a comfortable living, painting watch faces using a radium compound that glows in the dark. This new vision of freedom is shattered when one by one the women begin to fall ill to mysterious ailments. They discover the source of their sickness is the radioactive paint used for the watches, and decide to seek retribution in the form of a class-action lawsuit against their employer, Radium Dial Company. Though the women are doomed to die, their struggle to fix what is broken demonstrates the power of the female spirit, despite the curbing of women’s newly won social freedoms during the Great Depression. Corn Stock Theatre's production of "These Shining Lives" opens Jan. 14 at the Theatre Center at Upper Bradley Park and runs for two weekends.For tickets and more information visit Corn Stock Theatre.
