Photograph 51  
Central Square Theater Photograph 51
 
The Nora Theatre Company presents Photograph 51 at Central Square Theatre. In 1951, British biophysicist Rosalind Franklin became a research associate at King's College in London.

Told with wit and urgency by a chorus of scientists who relive the competitive chase to be the first to map the DNA molecule, Photograph 51 is the story of a fiercely independent and ambitious young scientist and her unsung, trailblazing achievements.
