Cascade Theatrical presents “These Shining Lives”  – A Play by Melanie Marnich,   Directed by Emily Cady

Presented through special arrangement with Dramatists’ Play Service

Based on the true story of four women in the 1920’s, THESE SHINING LIVES follows Catherine Donohue and her coworkers in a watch factory, as they paint the hour markings onto different sized watch dials using a radium compound which glows in the dark. Radium Dial, the company, assures them that there is no evidence that radium is harmful.  This production chronicles the strength and determination of women considered expendable in their day, exploring their true story and its continued resonance.
