These Shining Lives is a play written by Melanie Marnich. The play is based on the true story of the Radium Girls, whose court cases in the 1930’s helped lead reform of industrial practices in the United States. It 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. The women refuse to allow the company that stole their health to kill their spirits—or endanger the lives of those who come after them.
