London, 1953. Scientists are on the verge of discovering what they call the secret of life: the DNA double helix. Providing the key is driven young physicist Rosalind Franklin. But if the double helix was the breakthrough of the 20th century, then what kept Franklin out of the history books? A play about ambition, isolation, and the race for greatness.
The play is about the race to solve the structure of the DNA and the role of Rosalind Franklin who provided the critical evidence for this. For a long time, she never got the credit and this play highlights her efforts in science at a time when the doors of science were not open for women.
This play will be produced under the History of ideas programme. The essence of the programme is the production of plays based on the lives of great personalities who have contributed significantly to human thought in a demanding historical context. The objective of the programme is to achieve a wide public reach using biographical plays as a vehicle for Inspiration regarding creative human endeavour and Public awareness regarding the shaping of societies.
