These Shining Lives  
Three Crows at Piven Theatre These Shining Lives
 
"This isn't a fairy tale, though it starts like one. It's not a tragedy, though it ends like one." The Radium Dial Company hired thousands of women to hand paint watch and clock faces, using a luminescent paint made partially from the radioactive element radium, which was being hailed at the time for its amazing healing properties. But the workers weren't told about the dangers. More than just casualties, Catherine Wolfe Donohue and her friends fight fiercely to hold the company accountable for its negligence. These Shining Lives is based on the true story of the 1920s & '30s "Radium Girls" from Ottawa, Illinois. See it at the Piven Theatre in Evanston.

We're Only Alive for A Short Amount of Time  
Goodman Theatre We're Only Alive for A Short Amount of Time
 
Growing up in an industrial English town, writer/performer David Cale escaped his parents' fraught marriage by singing in his bedroom and tending to birds in the animal hospital he built in a garden shed-until a tragedy changed everything. Lushly arranged songs and an intimate portrait of his mother-a charismatic woman trapped by her circumstances-unite in Cale's vivid testament of connecting to life when adversity is suddenly everywhere. With his "singular fusion of theater and performance art" (Chicago Tribune), Cale makes "reality and fantasy dissolve into stories as memorable as one's most vivid dreams" (The New York Times).
