Join us following the performance on Monday, March 18 at Vialé* for the official opening of Photograph 51!
London, 1952. British biophysicist Rosalind Franklin’s DNA discovery leads to the Nobel Prize – not for her, but for three men: Francis Crick, James Dewey Watson, and Maurice Wilkins.
“It deals with timely feminist issues but also the key fundamentals of how we relate to each other, who we are, our tragic flaws…A TRIUMPH.” — The Telegraph
Recounting the competitive chase to map the DNA molecule, Photograph 51, moves deeper into the #MeToo movement and examines the pervasiveness of gender bias. This production celebrates the anniversaries of The Nora, URT, and CST!
Photograph 51 is part of The Brit d’Arbeloff Women in Science Production Series. A Catalyst Collaborative@MIT Production.
