The University of Alaska Anchorage is putting on a performance entitled "Radium Girls". It's based on true events and will wrap up after their showings this weekend.

The play is set in the 1920s, in a  time where radium tinted products, such as water and paint, were thought to be miracle cures for people. The play is, in part, about the struggle of changing people's thoughts towards the substance, while battling the human nature of those unwilling to move on.

The show runs Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m. and Sunday at 5 p.m. You can find tickets and more information on the UAA Arts website.
