Synopsis

The time is the 1930s. In a Vermon town, Hazel Flagg has been painting radium dials in a watchworks. She is told by Dr. Downer that she has only three weeks to live. In New York, a genius magazine editor who is looking to boost the magazine's circulation thinks it would be a good stunt to bring Hazel down and give her a big fling in the big city for the last days of her life. All of New York goes mad for Hazel.

It develops that Dr. Downer's diagnosis was wrong and Hazel is as healthy as a horse. Hazel and one of the magazine's associate editors fall in love.

(Adapted from the synopsis in Theatre '53, edited by John Chapman, published by Random House.)
