These Shining Lives by Melanie March
The Village Players of Hatboro Theater
Hatboro, PA
Share this event:

Based on the true story of four women who worked in a watch factory in Ottawa, Illinois, the play dramatizes the danger women faced in the workforce in the 1920s, and the lack of concern by companies for protecting the health of its employees. Narrated by one of the workers, Catherine Donohue, These Shining Lives shows women getting a chance for a well-paying job in the 1920s and early 1930s, which was uncharacteristic for the time in the United States. The job, which seems easy enough to the four main characters, is painting the hour markings onto different sized watch dials using a radium compound which glows in the dark. But when their job starts to make them sick, they  refuse to allow the company that stole their health to kill their spirits- or endgaer the lives of those who come after them. A story of strength, determintaion, and survival.

The Village Players of Hatboro is a 501(c)3 not for profit all volunteer community theater.
