performed by Denise Kenney and Kate Twa

Weakened and demoralized by a scandal inflamed by ruthless reporters, Marie Curie joins Hertha Ayrton, an electromechanical engineer and suffragette, at a seaside retreat on the British coast. The two brilliant women discuss Einstein’s oddities, the wonders of a curious mind, and the patriarchy couldn’t stop them.

Tempest will host an evening that celebrates the brilliance of women and their contributions. Denise Kenney and Kate Twa will be joined by special guests in a talkback segment to explore themes arising from the play and to discuss the complex and critical roles that women play in supporting each other.

Special guests for the March 24th performance will include two women from UBCO: feminist researcher Astrida Neumanis and mathematician Rebecca Tyson, as well as retired executive and active philanthropist, Colleen Pennington.
