Audible Theater celebrated the official opening of its world premiere of The Half-Life of Marie Curie by Lauren Gunderson at the Minetta Lane Theatre November 19. Directed by Gaye Taylor Upchurch, the new play stars Francesca Faridany as Marie Curie and Kate Mulgrew as Hertha Ayrton.

The Half-Life of Marie Curie, which began performances November 12, follows Curie during the summer of 1912 when news of her secret affair threatens to overshadow her second Nobel Prize win. Heartbroken, she leaves France to stay with Ayrton at her home on the British seaside and together they confront the scandal that could end Curie’s career—and drastically alter her life.
