A LIVING HISTORY of MARIE CURIE
Written and performed by Susan Frontzcak
Saturday, April 17, 2004
Tickets- $15 ($8 for ages 18 and under)

Imagine: You are not allowed to speak your language. Your home country forbids you to attend university. You have no money to attend college elsewhere. What are your chances for success? In spite of these and other adversities, Marie Curie was the first woman to receive a doctorate in the sciences in Europe, the first woman to receive a Nobel Prize, the first person to receive a second Nobel Prize, and the first woman to teach at the Sorbonne in its 600-year history.
