The Michael Grandage Company have released this picture pf Nicole Kidman as Rosalind Franklin in the upcoming play Photograph 51 by Anna Ziegler. Photograph 51 runs at the Noel Coward Theatre from 5 September – 21 November 2015.
Joining Nicole in Photograph 51 are Will Attenborough (James Watson), Edward Bennett (Francis Crick), Stephen Campbell Moore (Maurice Wilkins), Patrick Kennedy (Don Caspar) and Joshua Silver (Ray Gosling).
Photograph 51 marks the return of the Michael Grandage Company to the West End folowing their acclaimed season in 2013/14.
Photograph 51 is Rosalind Franklin’s story. 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.
