Photograph 51

By Anna Ziegler
Directed by Vanessa Stalling

Jan 17, 2019 — Feb 23, 2019

★★★★ “Fascinating… there is no better 90 minutes in town.”

“The role of Franklin has allowed the actress Chaon Cross to do the best work of her career.  If this were a movie, there would be Oscar chatter.”  

–Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune

History may well remember the work of Watson and Crick that shaped biology, but it was British chemist Rosalind Franklin who provided the key to the double helix DNA discovery. Photograph 51 shares the complex story of an ambitious female scientist in a world of men, her pursuit for the secret of life, and her forgotten accomplishments.

Chaon Cross

Featuring Chaon Cross as Rosalind Franklin.

As the Center for Classic Theatre, Court will invite collaborations with scientific experts at the University of Chicago as partners for Photograph 51, to utilize the intellectual resources unique to Court Theatre.


Approximate Running Time: 90 minutes, presented without intermission

Photograph 51 is sponsored by

Photo of Chaon Cross, Nicholas Harazin, and Alex Goodrich (Joe Mazza).
