Radium Girls

March 13-17

In 1926 luminous watches were painted with this wonderous glow-in-the-dark discovery, until the girls working in factories painting the watch dials begin to fall ill with an unidentified disease. Written by D.W. Gregory and directed by Claire Syler, this story is inspired by true events following Grace Fryer, one of the dial painters, fighting for restitution against her former employer Arthur Roeder. Tickets are $22 in the Rhynsburger Theatre.


April 24-28

Written by Caridad Svich and directed by Kevin Brown, this play hurls one of Greek tragedy’s most compelling sagas into a sleek netherworld of sex, drugs and trance music. Iphigenia is the daughter of a political celebrity who embraces sensuous excess with a transgendered glam rock star named Achilles in a desperate attempt to flee her inevitable fate. Tickets are $22 in the Studio 4, McKee Gymnasium.
