Meet the Women of
Radium Girls

An All-Female Cast Paints a Glowing Image of Corporate Greed

Once considered a miracle cure and scientific marvel, by the 1920s the radium used to paint luminous watches has triggered fatal health problems for Grace Fryer and other dial painters. As their health deteriorates, Grace must fight the ruthless U.S. Radium Corporation for rightful compensation even while radiation poisoning destroys her body and life.

Helmed by director Lindsay Eagle, Flat Earth presents the first all-female professional production of this moving play inspired by the true story of the factory workers of U.S. Radium.
Erin Eva Butcher as
Grace Fryer

Erin takes the stage as the original radium girl Grace Fryer, the humble dial painter who grows sicker with radiation poisoning as her conviction to her cause grows more vital. Erin is also the Artistic Director of Maiden Phoenix Theatre Co., which is gearing up for their all-female The Winter's Tale August 14–30.
Bridgette Hayes as
Arthur Roeder

Bridgette steps into the shoes of Arthur Roeder, the president of the US Radium Corporation who must balance his business savvy with a complicated moral nightmare. Later this year, Bridgette will be seen in The Hub Theatre Company's production of The Love of the Nightingale, opening in November.
Kamelia Aly as
Katherine Wiley, et al.

No stranger to a big ensemble-based show, Kamelia has performed with imaginary beasts in Hairy Tales and Little Giants. She takes on Katherine Wiley, stalwart advocate to the dial painters' cause and executive director of the New Jersey Consumer's League.
Katie Bond as
Dr. Von Sochocky et al.

Katie was last seen with Flat Earth as Henry Higgins's upper-class mother in last summer's dystopian Pygmalion. Her next challenge will be in her role as Dr. Von Sochocky, the founder of the US Radium Corporation who invented the luminous paint at the heart of the play.
Katharine Daly as
Tom Kreider, et al.

Flat Earth Theatre is thrilled to have Kate back onstage after her touching portrayal of Pem Farnsworth in June's critically acclaimed run of The Farnsworth Invention. Now Kate takes on the starkly different roles of Grace's dutiful fiancé Tom Kreider and the conniving lawyer Edward Markley.
Paola M. Ferrer as
Sob Sister, et al.

A newcomer to Flat Earth, Paola was recently seen in Blood Wedding and Entre Mujeres, both with Escena Latina Teatro. In Radium Girls, her roles range from the emphatic tabloid reporter Nancy Jane Harlan, to Grace's mother at the end of her rope, to the girls' steadfast lawyer Raymond Berry.
Kristen Heider as
Charlie Lee, et al.

Kristen just wrapped up Night of the Super Sleuths with the Post-Meridian Radio Players, in which she solved crime as the vastly intuitive Lady Molly of Scotland Yard. She doubles as the doomed but devoted dial painter Irene Rudolph and the ruthless company vice president Charlie Lee.
Kathleen C. Lewis as
Kathryn Shaub, et al.

A member of Beau Jest Moving Theatre, a Boston-based physical theatre company, Kathleen has had the pleasure of performing at the Provincetown Tennessee Williams Theater Festival. Now she takes on the role of Kathryn Shaub, a lively and diligent dial painter who has to fight for her life and her rights.
Marty Mason as
Diane Roeder, et al.

Last seen on the Flat Earth stage as the vacant-eyed secretary Hana in The Memorandum and as the mourning wife Yanina Fuentes in the staged reading of Widows, Marty is back as Roeder's upstanding wife Diane, among other roles. She just got back from PortFringe where she performed in A Play About Nothing with Broadside Theatricals.
Lindsay Eagle

Flat Earth company member and publicity and marketing manager, Lindsay takes command of this all-female cast. Previously, she directed the Rocket Man and What Once We Felt with Flat Earth, and in January she'll be in the director chair for the world premier of Citizens of the Empire by Flat Earth member Kevin Mullins with Boston Public Works.
