I’ll be on hand for a post-show discussion following the Nov. 21 matinee performance of Radium Girls at Metropolitan Playhouse, 220 E. 4th Street, in Manhattan.
Radium Girls has been newly revised for a limited run Oct. 28 – Nov. 21, directed by Laura Livingston. The production marks its professional premiere in New York.
The play is based on the true story of the women who painted watch dials with luminous paint at a time when radium was hailed as a miracle cure and marketed as a health tonic. The play traces the story of one dial painter, Grace Fryer, and her quest to uncover the causes of her mysterious illness and to seek compensation from her employer, Arthur Roeder.
