Written by D.W. Gregory and inspired by a true story, "Radium Girls" is set in 1920s when radium was considered a miracle cure.  But what happens a group of radium paint workers begin to fall ill with a mysterious disease. The play traces the efforts of Grace Fryer, a dial painter, as she fights for her day in court.
