Glenbard West to present fast-moving drama "Radium Girls"
Apr 17, 2017 5:00 PM - Glenbard West High School will present the play "Radium Girls" April 27-29. "Radium Girls" is a fast-moving drama inspired by a true story of the 1920s. When girls who paint watches with radium fall ill with a mysterious disease, Grace, a dial painter, fights for her day in court vs. the U.S. Radium Corporation. Called "powerful" and "engrossing" by critics, "Radium Girls" offers an unflinching look at the peculiarly American obsession with health, wealth and the commercialization of science.
