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.
