Duke City Rep's THESE SHINING LIVES Runs thru May 25 at The Cell

Duke City Repertory Theatre opens Melanie Marnich's beautiful and riveting biopic "These Shining Lives" tonight at The Cell Theatre.

Directed by John Hardy and starring several of Albuquerque's finest actors, this story chronicles Catherine Donahue and her friends, whose jobs at the Radium Dial Factory in 1920s Chicago was the most liberating, revolutionary experience of their lives. But when these women began to fall ill from the poisonous radium in the watches they painted, they found themselves swept up in a much larger revolution--one that changed American history forever.

Led by the defiant Catherine, these women stared an industrial Goliath in the face, and challenged the notion that human life is capitalism's greatest natural resource. These Shining Lives reminds us that true survival not only transcends the physical world, but lives on in the timeless legacy of a handful of brave, determined women who wouldn't go down without a fight.

The show opened on May 15 and runs through May 25, 2014 (Thurs through Sun), playing Thurs-Sat at 8:00 pm, Sun at 2:00 pm. The Cell Theatre is located at 700 1st St. NW 87102. Tickets: Regular: $20; Senior/Student/Military: $12; Groups 8+: $10; Thurs. May 22: $10. Visit www.dukecityrep.com or call (505) 797-7081 for more information.

***There will be a special performance at the National Museum of Nuclear Science & History on Friday, May 23 at 6 pm.
