History explored in The Half-Life of Marie Curie 

Lauren Gunderson’s historical play The Half-Life of Marie Curie explores the lives and friendship of famous scientists Marie Curie and Hertha Ayrton at BAT Theatre from May 8 through 16.

Marie Curie was famous for discovering and naming the elements radium and polonium. Curie was the first woman to win a Nobel Prize, the first person to win two Nobel Prizes, and the only person to win in multiple science fields – physics and chemistry - all before women were allowed to vote in France. This play conveys not only Curie’s astonishing achievements without sounding like a book report, it also captures her personal life as a female scientist of the time.

Performances include...
