Radium Girls at Bishop McNamara High School, Mar 14-16
by D. W. Gregory
Location: Bishop McNamara High School in Forestville.
Bishop McNamara High School Fine Arts Department Theatre Program is excited to announce our spring play, RADIUM GIRLS.
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. Her chief adversary is her former employer, Arthur Roeder, an idealistic man who cannot bring himself to believe that the same element that shrinks tumors could have anything to do with the terrifying rash of illnesses among his employees.
Written by local playwright D.W. Gregory, performance dates are Friday, March 14 and 15 at 7:30 pm and Sunday, March 16 at 2:00 pm. Tickets are $10 each. Please join us for another outstanding production!
