The Department of Theater presents These Shining Lives, a play based on the true story of four young women who obtain a high paying job at Radium Dial company. Such jobs were unusual for women in the 1920’s, so the girls eagerly accept. After some time working there, the women start noticing some troubling health issues. It takes numerous doctors’ visits and some travel to finally understand what was happening to them. This revelation sends them on an upward battle to fight for what’s right.
