Radium Girls, written by D. W. Gregory and directed by Kevin Paris, opens Nov. 9 at Duncanville Community Theatre. Performances will be Nov. 9-11 and Nov. 16-28 at 8 p.m., with a Sunday matinee performance at 3 p.m. on Nov. 12.

The powerful story is based on true events, and follows a woman’s fight for justice against the U.S. Radium Corporation. She fought them after she and other luminous watch dial painters became mysteriously ill. Serious, fast-moving and often humorous dialogue pits health against wealth.
