These Shining Lives
by Mary Moody Northen Theatre

Nov. 10 - Nov. 20, 2022

These Shining Lives chronicles the strength and determination of a group of women working for the Radium Dial Company, a watchmaker in Ottowa Illinois in the 1920s, which offered jobs to women while slowly poisoning them. Theirs is a story of survival in its most transcendent sense, as they refuse to allow the company that stole their health to kill their spirits—or endanger the lives of those who come after them. A luminescent, poetic play.

                 “…has a humanistic glow…clockwork precision…an initially comic and ultimately tragic look at how individual women find employment within a system more concerned with profit than safety.” —Variety

Directed by Lara Toner Haddock
