A perfect science-history play, with all the hurtling momentum of a race towards discovery..— Variety

A riveting and moving portrait of Rosalind Franklin, one of the great female scientists of the twentieth century, and the often overlooked role she played in the discovery of the double helix. Presented as a reader’s theatre performance, Photograph 51 masterfully weaves the thriller-like twists and tension in the race to discover the structure of DNA with lyrical moments of awe and scientific wonder, while revealing the unsung achievements of this trail-blazing, fiercely independent woman.

What playwright Anna Ziegler has achieved in her intriguing portrait of the British scientist Rosalind Franklin is a remarkable balance of scientific subject matter and theatrical storytelling… a play that glows with intelligence and humanity. This is a complex story filled with complex characters that Ziegler tells with clarity and economy… Dr. Rosalind Franklin deserves greater fame, just as this play about her deserves a wider audience.
