Lima Christian School is delighted to announce the upcoming production of Radium Girls, a thought-provoking play written by D.W. Gregory. This compelling theatrical performance will be held at the Honeoye Falls-Lima High School Auditorium, 83 East Street in Honeoye Falls on November 17 and November 18 at 7 p.m.
Radium Girls explores a poignant and historically significant narrative, making it a must-see event for the local community. The play promises to captivate the audience with its powerful storytelling and talented cast. The story delves into the historical events surrounding the Radium Dial Company, where young women painted watch dials with luminous radioactive paint. The play sheds light on their fight for justice and accountability in the face of health hazards.
“We are producing this powerful play because it’s important to share the story of these brave women who fought for their rights and helped to change the world of work for everyone,” says director Bethany Warsaw. “While the play does deal with challenging subject matter, it’s ultimately a story of hope and resilience. It’s a reminder that even the smallest voices can make a difference.”
