The Randolph-Macon College Drama Department presents “Radium Girls” by D. W. Gregory.
Performances will take place at 8:00 p.m. in the Cobb Theatre, R-MC Center for Performing
Arts Wednesday, October 19-Saturday, October 22.
Set in 1926 and inspired by a true story, Radium Girls traces the efforts of Grace
Fryer, a watch-dial painter, as she fights for her day in court. Her chief adversary
is her former employer, Arthur Roeder, an idealistic man who cannot bring himself
to believe that the same element—radium—that shrinks tumors could have anything
to do with a terrifying rash of illnesses among his employees. This production is
directed by Annamaria Diaz ’12 as her senior project in drama.
The Box Office (a phone mailbox) takes reservations at (804) 752-7316. Tickets are
$5 per person, free to R-MC faculty, staff and students.
