Manya: The Living History of Marie Curie

Brilliant one-woman play written and performed by Susan Marie Frontczak. Susan pays homage to their shared Polish heritage. Susan believes that Marie Curie’s inner complexity is not known, and deserves to be without being sensationalized in Hollywood style. Susan reveals the human behind the scientist, while placing Marie’s Curie’s life and accomplishments in an enjoyable and memorable event.

“Scientists in the audience applaud the accuracy of the presentation, while the non-scientists rejoice at the accessibility of Manya’s scientific descriptions.”
~ American Museum of Science and Energy
