Andy and Norman are two earnest young men using their apartment as a publishing office for a “protest” magazine in San Francisco. Sophie, an Olympic swimmer and all-American girl, moves into another apartment on the same floor. Her friendliness and charm leave Norman hopelessly smitten. Meanwhile, his partner is fielding telephone calls from the irate printer who wants to collect the money due him, and distracting the landlady from thoughts of back rent with motorcycle rides and surfing expeditions. And while she is convinced that they are editing a dangerously subversive magazine, Sophie soon finds that her real source of annoyance is that the wrong man is pressing his attention on her. Happily, this situation is reversed in time, as love and politics blend delightfully in a bubbling series of funny happenings, set forth by Neil Simon’s mastery of skill and inventiveness.

“Mr. Simon can do wonders… with casually tossed-off fantasies that pop up from nowhere and whistle as they go by.” – The New York Times

“Charm, brightness, deft inventiveness and capacity for good, honest hilarity.” – New York Post

These Shining Lives is based on a true story of four women working for the Radium Dial Company – a watch factory in Ottawa, Illinois. It shows women getting a chance for a well-paying job in the 1920s and early 1930s. The job seems easy enough, to paint the hour markings onto different-sized watch dials using a radium compound that glows in the dark. The company tells the women that there is no evidence that radium is harmful and even that it has health benefits. After a period of time, the workers notice that their hands start glowing in the dark but assume that it is just from the radium powder used to paint the faces. The ladies later develop ailments, including jaw infections and bone pain. The play showcases the danger women faced in this workplace and highlights the wider lack of concern companies had for protecting the health of their employees. These Shining Lives chronicles the strength and determination of women considered expendable in their day, exploring their true story and its continued resonance. Theirs is a story of survival in its most transcendent sense, as they refuse to allow the company that stole their health to kill their spirits—or endanger the lives of those who come after them.

These Shining Lives has a humanistic glow…clockwork precision…an initially comic and ultimately tragic look at how individual women find employment within a system more concerned with profit than safety.” —Variety.

“Perfect, touching and wistful…beautifully tragic.” —Talkin’ Broadway.
