Duke City Rep is partnering with Enlace Comunitario and S.A.F.E. House New Mexico to provide assistance to survivors of domestic violence by hosting a diaper, toy, and clothing drive. DCRT encourages its patrons to participate in the drive by bringing diapers, baby wipes, toys, and new or gently used women’s clothing to The Cell Theatre on the night of any performance of All I Want For Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth. Patrons who participate in the drive will be entered into a raffle for a chance to win free tickets to DCRT’s production of The 39 Steps, a Tony award-winning and action-packed comedy playing in May of 2015. 
The donated diapers and baby wipes will benefit the children of women to whom Enlace Comunitario provides support and transitional assistance, and the donated women’s clothing will directly aid the women staying at the S.A.F.E. House shelter.The children’s toys will be distributed evenly between both support agencies.

Tickets now available for These Shining Lives!


“It was the job of the century.  The job of our dreams.”


For Catherine Donahue and her friends, a job 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.
