'Radium Girls' glows, fails to dazzle

"Radium Girls" tells the story of factory worker Grace Fryer, her lawsuit against the U.S. Radium Corporation, and her illness due to exposure to radium on the job. The play incorporates newspaper headlines and historical facts from the lives of the real-life radium girls, making it both an educational and dramatic story. Unfortunately, the details of time and place occasionally overshadow the humanity of the characters.
