Three outstanding pioneers represent the achievements of women in the fields of science and technology: The double Nobel Price 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 centre of the theatre play „Curie_Meitner_Lamarr_indivisible“, produced by the Viennese association portraittheater. Illustrated with music and videos, the performance shows within 95 minutes an entertaining portrait of extraordinary women in history. The theatre performance, directed by Sandra Schüddekopf, with Anita Zieher impersonating the three women was a great success in Austria and had already been invited to Belgium, Germany, Iran, Poland, Switzerland and Romania.
