Radiance: The Passion of Marie Curie at the Tabard
Alces Productions will present the UK Premiere of RADIANCE: The Passion of Marie Curie by Alan Alda at the Tabard Theatre in west London from 4 to 28 February 2015, with an official opening on 5 February 2015.
The 7-time Emmy Award-winning actor, screenwriter and author Alan Alda captures the emotional turmoil of a woman forced to choose between love and her life's work.
"In the intellectual and creative ferment of early 20th century Paris, Marie Curie and her husband, Pierre, struggle through endless hours of physically dangerous work in order to master the secrets of radiation. Reaching a remarkable breakthrough, they share a Nobel Prize, the first ever granted to a woman. But the world isn't fully ready to accept Marie's incredible achievement."
The production will be directed by Mark Giesser, whose credits at the Tabard include 'How to Build a Better Tulip', 'Code of the West' and 'Good Morning, Alamo!'.
