This one-woman drama exposes the struggles and triumphs of Madame Marie Curie 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. One-hour Chautauqua-format program adjusted as appropriate for adults or for school groups grades 4 through 12. A 40 minute presentation from childhood through scientific discovery, followed by a 10 minute Q&A with Marie Curie, and a 10 minute Q&A with the author/presenter.
