Set in Paris during the Belle Epoch era of early 20th century, The Radiant by Shirly Lauro centers on a time in the life of Marie Sklodowska Curie.
Widowed with two small children, she falls in love with her young married laboratory assistant, Paul Langevin.
The affair rocks Paris, causing a scandal that nearly cost Madame Curie her career - and her life. Yet Marie survives this tempestuous time; and the enormous bias against women scientists throughout Europe.
She goes on to isolate metal radium and earn her second Nobel Prize, revolutionizing the world of science and provoking a brave new world – the Atomic Age - and the first cure for cancer.
The Radiant is a luminous play that reveals not only the genius scientist, but also the passionate woman seldom contemplated.
