CURIE is a one-person play featuring the illustrious scientist, Madame Marie Curie. Jo Anderson’s play, ”Curie”, is a deeply moving, riveting work. It goes far beyond a simple portrait of a great scientist we know as Madame Curie; the celebrated genius who discovered Radium.

Jo offers us a unique and profoundly compelling glimpse into this extraordinary scientist’s life, work and mind: a stunning piece that that takes us on a deeply personal path of discovery. In our present time of much fear, confusion and divisiveness, this courageous work, which captures a union between Nature and Humankind, brings to bear the potential paradox of an energy, Radioactivity, that has the power to heal as well as destroy.

Jo Anderson’s stunning performance embodies this profound duality with passion, pathos, humor and grace.
