The Half-Life of Marie Curie


The Half-Life of Marie Curie


The Half-Life of Marie Curie

March 16 – April 2, 2023

Setting: seaside retreat on the British coast, 1912

When two Nobel prizes prove inadequate armor against scandal, Marie Curie turns to fellow scientist and trusted confidant Hertha Ayrton to weather the storm of heartbreak, public opinion, and self-doubt. At its core a tale of women's friendship, this play explores the hidden costs of progress and the relationships that hold us up when we can’t stand on our own.

Directed by long-time Theatreworks collaborator Sarah Sheppard Shaver, and featuring powerhouse local actors, this two- woman show will showcase the best of Colorado Springs artistic community, in a sharp new play by the most frequently produced playwright in America. The Half Life of Marie Curie will play to an intimate audience upstairs in the Osborne Studio Theater. Subscribe today to guarantee tickets for this portrait of trailblazing women, reminding us that behind every great woman, there is an equally great friend.
