South Park Theatre’s Production of ‘These Shining Lives’ Opens July 27th 

An initially comic and ultimately tragic look at how individual women find employment within a system more concerned with profit than safety.” ~ Variety

These Shining Lives, by playwright Melanie Marnich, is based on the true story of Catherine Donohue, who begins working at the Radium Dial Company watch factory with the excitement of a newly liberated woman entering the workforce in 1922. She quickly befriends the colorful and close-knit group of women she works with. But when their health starts to deteriorate quickly, questions arise, and truths about the dangerous substance they work with are revealed. These Shining Lives is a beautiful story of resilience, strength, sacrifice, and the courage to do what’s right to protect future generations.

South Park’s production features actors Samantha Hawk, Danette Pemberton, Kodie Warnell, Johnna Lafebvre, Lauren Connolly, Michael Church, & Michael Phelps. These Shining Lives is is Directed by Barbara Lafebvre.
