Marie Curie's story is a tale of glowing powders with extraordinary powers, lives saved and destroyed, and unparalleled achievements in the face of unbelievable odds.
Back in Adelaide by popular demand, writer and performer John Hinton returns to the Fringe in the third installment of his Scientrilogy: 'The Element in the Room'.
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.
Full of heart, great songs, and the most entertaining ways to learn chemistry, 'The Element in the Room' can be seen as a solo show or with the other installments of the Scientrilogy: "Origin of Species..." and "Albert Einstein: Relativitively Speaking."
WINNER: Adelaide Fringe 2018 Bank SA Best Theatre Award (Week 4) - John Hinton's Scientrilogy
