Presented as a Reader’s Theatre performance, “Photograph 51” masterfully weaves the thriller-like twists and tension in the race to discover the structure of DNA with lyrical moments of awe and scientific wonder, while revealing the unsung achievements of this trail-blazing, fiercely independent woman. This is a riveting and moving portrait of Rosalind Franklin, one of the great female scientists of the 20th century, and the often overlooked role she played in the discovery of the double helix.
Following the performance MOSH and Actors Collective will host a panel discussion about WOMEN’S CAREERS in the sciences past and present, inspiring the next generation of STEM talent!
The doors will open at 1:45 p.m. The program will begin at 2 p.m. All ages welcome!
