    Name: Radium Girls
    Date: October 9, 2017 - October 18, 2017
    Event Description:
    Radium Girls tells the true story of Grace Fryer, one of the young women employed by U. S. Radium Corporation who applied the highly radioactive substance to watch dials. The young women began to contract terrible diseases and disfiguring effects from handling radium. Their plight led to landmark litigation when the women sued the corporation for injuries incurred during their employment. This play blends the facts of the case with warmth and humor and provides an important history lesson that resonates even in the 21 st century. Jenny Ampersand is a theatrical designer known for her many costume designs along with scenery, puppetry and properties. She was trained at the Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle and she works primarily in the Portland theatre community. Ampersand has won a Grant for Artists Projects in Washington state and a Portland Drammy for her costume design for the Liminal Theatre production of Seven Deadly Sins.
