Photograph 51

The Michael Grandage Company presents the UK première of Anna Ziegler’s award-winning play Photograph 51, with Academy award-winning actress Nicole Kidman as Rosalind Franklin. 

“The instant I saw the photograph my mouth fell open and my pulse began to race”

Does Rosalind Franklin know how precious her photograph is? In the race to unlock the secret of life it could be the one to hold the key. With rival scientists looking everywhere for the answer, who will be first to see it and more importantly, understand it? Anna Ziegler’s extraordinary play looks at the woman who cracked DNA and asks what is sacrificed in the pursuit of science, love and a place in history.

Directed by Michael Grandage; Set and Costume Designer: Christopher Oram

Composer and Sound Designer: Adam Cork
