Nicole Kidman will return to the West End stage with the Michael Grandage Company in September 2015.

Kidman will play the role of Rosalind Franklin in Photograph 51, a new play by Anna Ziegler. The production is the play’s UK premiere and reunites Grandage and Kidman following their recent collaboration on the feature film Genius.

Michael Grandage said , “We’re thrilled to be returning to the West End with Nicole Kidman in Photograph 51 at such a vibrant time for London theatre.”

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.

Photograph 51 opens at the Noel Coward Theatre on 14 September, with previews from 5 Septmeber and runs until 21 November 2015.
