Presented by The Nora Theatre Company & Central Square Theater

London, 1952. British biophysicist Rosalind Franklin is a research associate at King’s College, where her X-ray imaging has revealed DNA’s double helix structure. This discovery leads to the Nobel Prize – not for her, but for three men: Francis Crick, James Dewey Watson, and Maurice Wilkins. Recounting the competitive chase to map the DNA molecule, Photograph 51, moves deeper into the #MeToo movement and examines the pervasiveness of gender bias. This production celebrates the anniversaries of The Nora, URT, and CST!
