"It's a commanding, intelligent performance and my only complaint about Anna Ziegler's intriguing, informative 95-minute play is that it is not longer."

After stunning the West End, Anna Ziegler's captivating new play comes the Broadway. Telling the story of one of modern science's forgotten pioneers, Rosalind Franklin, it starred Nicole Kidman in the lead role in its London production. Casting for this Broadway transfer has yet to be announced.
Rosalind Franklin was a tenacious British chemist who more than held her own in the male-dominated scientific field of the 1950s. During her three-year fellowship at King's College London she played a crucial, and criminally overlooked, role in the discovery of DNA's Double Helix. Photograph 51 delves into the ambition and all-consuming hunger for discovery which led to this scientific breakthrough, and the reasons why Franklin was for so long nothing more than a historical footnote.
