TAMPA, FL. (January 24, 2019) – In the upcoming performances of These Shining Lives, Powerstories Theatre pays tribute to the real-life circumstances of the “radium girls.” Based on their true story, the social drama depicts the tragedy of four women working in a watch factory that conceals from them the hazards of working with radium. The production dramatizes workplace hazards in 1920s Illinois and explores the political nuances of female emergence in the workforce within the timeless context of employee rights in the face of corporate greed. These Shining Lives tells the story of a feminist victory when the women take their fight for justice to the Supreme Court
