 The Element in the Room

A Radioactive Musical Comedy about the Death and Life of Marie Curie

presented by Tangram Theatre Company

Broadway Baby ★★★★★ “It's clever, heartfelt and it’s made me the most excited I've been about science in years.”

Marie Curie's story is a tale of of glowing powders with extraordinary powers, lives saved and destroyed, and unparalleled achievements in the face of unbelievable odds. 


Join us for an adventurous musical-comedy-road-movie that follows Marie's real-life journey across the USA to collect a single gram of radium to continue her research.


Featuring incredible scientific breakthroughs, very 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 the final installment of our comedy musical trilogy and premieres at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival this summer.
