Conservatory of Theatre Arts Presents 'Photograph 51' April 5-7

The Webster's Conservatory of Theatre Arts presents Photography 51 April 5-7 on Stage III. This production is a Directing Capstone Project. 

A humorous and moving portrait of Rosalind Franklin, one of the great female scientists of the twentieth century, and her fervid drive to map the contours of the DNA molecule. A chorus of physicists relives the chase, revealing the unsung achievements of this trail-blazing, fiercely independent woman. The play captures themes of ambition, isolation, and the race for greatness. 


Critical Acclaim for 'Photograph 51'

“My only complaint about Anna Ziegler’s intriguing, informative 95-minute play is that it is not longer... What the play does is correct a historical injustice and ask, by implication, whether women are still sidelined in the scientific world...It proves that science is inherently dramatic and that the neglect of Rosalind Franklin’s contribution to uncovering the secret of life remains a blot on our history.” —The Guardian (US)
