About: Radiance

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. After Pierre’s death, a love affair with the brilliant, unhappily married physicist Paul Langevin rescues her from depression, but at the cost of a public scandal. It threatens to end Marie’s career just when she might be awarded an unprecedented second Nobel Prize.

Legendary 7-time Emmy Award-winning actor, screenwriter and bestselling author Alan Alda, in his first full-length stage drama, beautifully captures the emotional turmoil of a woman forced to choose between love and her life’s work.

Following on from its world premiere in Los Angeles, RADIANCE: The Passion of Marie Curie is brought to the Tabard by veteran New York and London producer/director Mark Giesser, whose three previous Tabard productions received extensive critical acclaim.

Reviews

The press on RADIANCE: The Passion of Marie Curie

‘Juicy, gaslit melodrama … illuminates the challenges that Marie Curie faced in pursuing a career in the sciences at a time when it was virtually unheard of for women to take prominent roles in academic or public life.’ The New York Times

‘Alan Alda has written an intelligent, lively play about the first female professor at the University of Paris and the first person to receive two Nobel Prizes. … In his debut as a playwright, Alda shows he has a talent for words.’ Examiner.com

‘Alda’s sharply written script shines a light on the precarious nature of love and marriage, set against the backdrop of remarkable discoveries in science.’ Theatermania

‘This is a fine play … The luminous subject alone should get you to the theatre.’
LA Arts Beat

“Radiance: The Passion of Marie Curie” is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, LTD
