Three outstanding pioneers represent the achievements of women in the field of science and technology: The double Nobel Prize winner and discoverer of radioactivity Marie Curie (1867-1934), the Austrian-Swedish nuclear physicist Lise Meitner (1878-1968), and the Viennese Hollywood actress Hedy Lamarr (1914-2000) with the invention of frequency hopping.

Incidents of their lives, achievements, and impediments as well as the contents of their research and the passion for their work are in the center of the theatre play „Curie_Meitner_Lamarr_indivisible“, produced by the Viennese association portraittheater (Actress: Anita Zieher, Director: Sandra Schüddekopf).

Illustrated with music and videos with three girls the performance shows within 95 minutes an entertaining portrait of extraordinary women in history. The performance will be in English.
