by Melanie Marnich, graduate of Morgan Park High School

May 1 – 3 at 8:00PM in the Denfeld Auditorium

401 North 44th Avenue East

Tickets: $7 Adults, $5 Students & Seniors

The play chronicles the true story of The Radium Girls, four women who contracted radiation poisoning from painting watch dials with glow-in-the-dark paint at a watch factory in the 1920’s. The women were told the paint was harmless; they later challenged their employer in a legal case that established the right of workers who contract occupational diseases to sue their employers.
