“These Shining Lives” is based on the true story of four women in 1920s America who sued their employer after being poisoned by radium in the clock factory where they worked. The play is presented by David Douglas High School Theatre Department.
“Catherine and her friends are dying, it’s true; but theirs is a story of survival in its most transcendent sense, as they refuse to allow the company that stole their health to kill their spirits— or endanger the lives of those who come after them.”
