Uprising Theatre Company presents These Shining Lives

by Melanie Marnich, directed by Shalee Coleman

October 6, 7, 9, 13, and 14

These Shining Lives chronicles the strength and determination of women considered expendable in their day, exploring their true story and its continued resonance. 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. A historical fiction period drama delving into the lives and trial of the 1920 Radium Girls who painted radium numbers onto clock faces, contracted radium poisoning, and fought for justice despite biting criticism.
