NICOLE KIDMAN stars in PHOTOGRAPH 51, a new play by ANNA ZIEGLER, directed by MICHAEL GRANDAGE at the Noel Coward Theatre.

"The instant I saw the photograph my mouth fell open and my pulse began to race"

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.

Nicole Kidman makes her much anticipated return to the London stage in the role of Rosalind Franklin, the woman who discovered the secret to Life, in the UK premiere of Anna Ziegler's award-winning play.

Olga Mala30th September

I loved it! Choice of play, choice of cast. I loved Nicole Kidman....

Rita Skinner23rd September

Really enjoyed it overall but think the play itself is a bit weak Without Nicole Kidman whose stage presence is awesome I don't think the play would have made a ripple on the London theatre scene. In fact the whole cast were excellent

Thomas Shoch22nd September

Great play, well structured very informative serious but never boring, fast dialogue and with some humour, there should be more plays of this kind and Oppenheimer. Needless to say the acting was great all-round

David Macklin22nd September

The play was very slick and polished. I thought the whole cast was excellent and the story really came through well.

Satyajit Bhattacharya20th September

Terrific play. Nicole Kidman is superb. The science is made simple. Makes you think about the sexism in science that was prevalent then and still exists now.

CARMEN LAKATOS20th September

Amazing theatre and Nicole Kidman was so good.

Amy Inman20th September

Amazing performance, Nicole was incredible. I've never been to see a play where it's almost hypnotised me and it was only the audience applause at the end which bought me out of it.

Linda Odell20th September

Excellent play. Nicole Kidman superb and Stephen Campbell Moore an unexpected bonus. Great cast.

Daniel Gustafsson20th September

The theatre was so claustrophobic and the seat so bad that we had to leave after 10 minutes. Money back please!

Elizabeth Watson-Semmons20th September

Very interesting story beautifully staged and acted. Thanks to the box office for enabling a last minute change of performances

Karol Omlor19th September

Loved the production; Nicole Kidman and cast were terrific. What an ensemble piece. I am really looking forward to reading the script now.

The Actors were brilliant , at times in the dress circle could not quite hear all the diction, but really worth seeing.
