Photograph 51

Every day until Sat 08 Oct 2022
Ensemble Theatre is thrilled to present Anna Ziegler’s play PHOTOGRAPH 51, inspired by the true story of scientist Rosalind Franklin’s discovery of the structure of DNA. Awarded Best New Play and Play of the Year following its West End debut, this brand-new production of PHOTOGRAPH 51 will be directed by internationally esteemed director Anna Ledwich at Ensemble Theatre from 2nd September until 8th October.

1951, the race is on to unlock the secret to life. An ambitious young scientist, Rosalind Franklin, might hold the key to decoding DNA and have a Nobel Prize worthy discovery within her reach. In a world dominated by men, a dedicated woman sacrifices her life in a relentless pursuit of science.

“It feels really important to provide an opportunity for this story, and for this woman to have her moment in the spotlight,” said Anna Ledwich, Director.

“I am thrilled to have Anna Ziegler’s wonderful play in our season directed by the amazingly talented Anna Ledwich, who has gathered this stunning cast. This is such an inspiring story about a hugely inspiring woman, Rosalind Franklin, a genius in her chosen field. We are very excited about Photograph 51’s debut on the Ensemble stage,” said Mark Kilmurry, Artistic Director, Ensemble Theatre.

In this powerful and inspirational story, Anna Ziegler honours Rosalind’s legacy where in a world dominated by men, she sacrificed her life in a relentless pursuit of science and the key to life.
