Chicago, the roaring 20s. A carefree time... or was it?
Catherine is overjoyed to begin her first ever job – working with a sparkling group of women for the Radium Dial Company. Independent, happy, fulfilled. But as she masters her craft she finds herself swept up on a much more dangerous adventure.
Written with heart-breaking lyricism, the tale unfolds amidst the most tender of love stories as Catherine finds herself an unlikely pioneer of women's rights.
A powerful play about love, friendship and determination.
Directed by Loveday Ingram (West End, RSC, Chichester, Barbican and Gate Theatre, Dublin)
