A musical comedy about eminent scientist Marie Curie, the ‘queen of radioactivity’, is set to captivate audiences at the Carriageworks in Leeds next month.

Presented by multi-award-winning Tangram Theatre Company, The Element in the Room: a Radioactive Musical Comedy about the Death and Life of Marie Curie follows their smash hit musical comedies about Charles Darwin and Albert Einstein. An adventurous musical-comedy, the show follows Curie’s real-life journey across America to find a gram of radium to continue her research. With incredible scientific breakthroughs, silly songs and an audience-participation radioactive decay chain, this is an exuberant celebration of the first woman to win a Nobel Prize, whose work continues to affect our lives today.

The Element in the Room is written and performed by a cross-dressing John Hinton.
