Fall Play

In the 1920's, 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 illnesses among his employees. Radium Girls offers an unflinching look at the peculiarly American obsessions with health, wealth, and the commercialization of science.

Tickets go on sale Friday 10/19 through 10/26 during tutorial, lunch, and after school.  Tickets will be available at the door the night of the performance.  Tickets are not available online.
