Three outstanding pioneers represent the achievements of women in the field 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 theater play "Curie_Meitner_Lamarr_indivisible“, produced of the Viennese association portraittheater. Illustrated with music and videos with three girls the performance shows within 95 minutes an entertaining portrait of extraordinary women in history.

The successful theater performance, directed by Sandra Schüddekopf, with Anita Zieher impersonating the three women had already been invited to Belgium, Germany, Iran, Poland, Switzerland (CERN) and Romania.
