THE HALF- LIFE OF MARIE CURIE
Performances begin 11/12th. LIMITED RUN.
Kate Mulgrew ("Orange Is the New Black") and Francesca Faridany (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time) star in THE HALF-LIFE OF MARIE CURIE, a compelling new play about renowned scientist Marie Curie and radical engineer Hertha Ayrton — and the friendship that strengthened their resolve to pursue their ambitions.

Written by Lauren Gunderson, the story follows Curie during the summer of 1912 when a secret affair threatens to overshadow her second Nobel Prize win. Heartbroken, Curie temporarily moves into Ayrton’s home and together they confront the scandal that could end Curie’s career — and drastically alter her life.

Directed by Gaye Taylor Upchurch, THE HALF-LIFE OF MARIE CURIE celebrates two brilliant women who have been overlooked by history for too long. Written expressly for Audible through its Emerging Playwright Fund, the play will be available to Audible listeners globally.
