Finding Madame Curie Presented by the CreateTheater New Works Festival

Nothing can stop Marie Curie in her quest for scientific discovery—not gender bias, ethnic discrimination, or personal tragedy.  After winning two Nobel Prizes, she creates mobile X-ray units that save countless lives of French soldiers, and at the warfront, she makes an unexpected discovery of her own.
