Marie Curie
Marie Sklodowska Curie. Physicist. Pioneer. Parent.

As she arrives from her native home in Poland to study at Sorbonne University in Paris, young Marie Sklodowska is certain she can make a name for herself and change the course of science. She discovers radium, a new chemical element, with her husband Pierre Curie, and she’s lauded with the Nobel Prize.

But she is faced with an overwhelming moral dilemma. As Marie discovers the lifesaving potential of radium to cure cancer, factory workers handling the glowing substance are succumbing to the insidious grip of radium poisoning.

As a woman with society against her, can she wrestle with both the potential and danger of her discovery – and what is she if radium’s dangers overshadow its possibilities?
A story of life and death, ‘Marie Curie’ has already captivated audiences in Korea and Japan with its sweeping score and story and is now brought to London audiences for the first time in a stirring original production directed by Sarah Meadows (Ride).

Pieces of A Man
A father. A son. Some baggage.

David’s father was a Libyan-Italian Jew who survived the Nazi concentration camps as a child. Larger than life, he went on through business boom and bust, casinos and shady deals, a bomb attack, and more – hauling his loved ones on his wild rollercoaster of a life. 

Now, David’s having a midlife crisis. He longs to grow up, but his macho dad keeps getting in the way. In Pieces of a Man, David brings us on a hilarious and transformational journey to find his dead father, and live on.

The show is fresh from a Europe-wide tour including Amsterdam, Brussels, Antwerp, and Berlin's legendary Volksbühne theatre.
