Lane Cove Theatre Company
Set in New Jersey in the 1920’s and inspired by a true story, Radium Girls traces the efforts of Grace Fryer, one of many dial painters, using radium to paint the watch dials. But the young girls start getting sick and now Grace finds herself not only fighting the deadly impact of radiation exposure but also for her day in court. Her chief adversary is her former employer, Arthur Roeder, an idealistic man who cannot bring himself to believe that the same element that shrinks tumours could have anything to do with the terrifying rash of illnesses among his employees. Grace finds that it’s not only the US Radium Corporation that she’s fighting but also her family and friends who want her to accept her fate and take what she can. Radium Girls offers a wry, unflinching look at the peculiarly American obsessions with health, wealth, and the commercialisation of science.
