On this edition of L.A. Theatre Works, we present Photograph 51 by Anna Ziegler, starring Miriam Margolyes, Matthew Arkin, and Maxwell Caufield.
About the play:
Rosalind Franklin was a gifted research scientist who was part of the race to uncover the secrets of DNA in the 1950’s. Her more famous contemporaries Watson and Krick took all the kudos for the discovery of the molecule’s double helix structure – yet it was Franklin’s skill with X-ray diffraction that first uncovered what’s called “the secret of life”.
