Manya - Marie Curie Living History Marie Curie
   
This one-woman drama exposes the
struggles and triumphs of Madame
Marie Curie (née Maria Skłodowska) —
an academically impassioned, vehemently
private, fervently Polish scientist, mother,
and teacher. From the political oppression
of her childhood, to scientific emergence and fame
to the tragedy that forced her into single motherhood
as well as further world prominence, this is a life that challenges
our assumptions about what one person can achieve and the responsibilities of science.

(The Polish spelling of Marie Curie's childhood name is "Mania." "Manya" was chosen to assist pronunciation.)
