No Walls Theatre
No Half Life by Marion MacBeth
Directed by Sam Pomeroy.
‘Life need not be easy provided only that it is not empty’.
Living through some of the most turbulent times in modern European history, Lise Meitner was at the forefront of the new science of Nuclear Physics. Her story is one of struggle – against a society that did not value female education, against academia that did not promote it, against a regime that threatened her existence and an establishment which used science to wage war.
Throughout, Meitner retained her humanity and her love of her subject.
‘No Half Life’ takes us on a journey through the life of Germany’s Marie Curie.
