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)
