    Photograph 51

    Presented by at Central Square Theater

    February 9 - March 18, 2012


    Photograph 51

    In 1951, British biophysicist Rosalind Franklin became a research associate at King’s College in London, where her X-ray imaging revealed DNA’s double helix structure, leading to the Nobel Prize – but not for Franklin. As told with wit and urgency by a chorus of scientists who relive the competitive race to be the first to map the DNA molecule, Photograph 51 is the story of the fiercely independent spirit of a young, ambitious scientist and her unsung, trailblazing achievements. Winner of the 2008 Stage International Script Competition for Best New Play About Science & Technology.

    Produced by The Nora Theatre Company.
