"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. Called a "powerful" and "engrossing" drama by critics, RADIUM GIRLS offers a wry, unflinching look at the peculiarly American obsessions with health, wealth, and the commercialization of science." - Dramatic Publishing
