The mockumentary musical Marie Curie – Hystérie is an original project of the Initiative for Mockumentaristic Theatre. The artists were inspired by the Swedish prose writer and playwright Per Olov Enquist’s novel The Book about Blanche and Marie which is about the fictional friendship of two real historical personalities − the Nobel Prize winner for physics and chemistry Marie Curie Skłodowska (1867-1934) and the famous hysterical patient at the La Salpêtrière sanatorium in Paris Blanche Marie Wittman (1859-1913).
