"These Shining Lives" May 3 | 7:00 p.m. | Cafeteria Directed by Jim Jones '19 Free Admission
The Upper School Theatre Department will present a one-act play, "These Shining Lives," on Friday, May 3, at 7:00 p.m. in the Cafeteria. Jim Jones '19 will be making his directorial debut as a culmination of his theatre career at NSA. "These Shining Lives" by Melanie Marnich follows the compelling stories of the “Radium Girls,” young women in the 1920s and ‘30s who painted the faces of luminous watches and clocks with radioactive paint. Set in Chicago and Ottawa, IL, home of the Radium Dial Company, the play deals with the true story of Catherine Donohue, who begins working at the factory with the excitement of a newly liberated woman entering the workforce in 1922. It then follows her life through her cancer diagnosis and the litigation she pursued against Radium Dial into the late 1930s. The effort of these courageous women and this case made it possible for workers to sue corporations for labor abuse. This transcendent story interweaves aspects of labor law and women’s history as well as the personal details of the Radium Girls’ lives.
