The Marie Curie Chat Show explores the theme of women and science. It takes an oblique, and sometimes surreal, look at the history and philosophy of science to raise questions about the ways we construct value and gender forms of knowledge. What are the relationships between fact and fiction, rationality and intuition, science and poetry? And what have been the contributions and roles played by female scientists- past and present, locally and internationally? (Variable cast. Originally done with 4 actors, can use up to 29. Could use all-female or mixed cast.)
