Radium Girls by D. W. Gregory is based on the true story of a group of women literally and figuratively fighting for their lives in 1920s America. After continuous exposure to radium in the watch factory in which they work, several women become sick and eventually die. The play documents the court proceedings of Grace Fryer and her fight for justice against a corrupt corporation, while slowly succumbing to the poisoning.
