The Living History

of Marie Curie

Marie Curie

This one-woman drama exposes the struggles and triumphs of Madame Marie Curie (née Maria Skłodowska) — an academically impassioned, vehemently private, fervently Polish scientist, mother, and teacher. From the political oppression of her childhood, to scientific emergence and fame to the tragedy that forced her into single motherhood as well as further world prominence, this is a life that challenges our assumptions about what one person can achieve and the responsibilities of science.

(The Polish spelling of Marie Curie's childhood name is "Mania." "Manya" was chosen to assist pronunciation.)
