THE SECRET OF LIFE
A Science Play Series

presented by Actors Collective in partnership with MOSH
and sponsored by STAGE Fund

Actors Collective presents three plays, performed reader’s theatre style, to compliment and expand on the themes presented in Genome: Unlocking Life’s Code, MOSH’s traveling exhibition that examines the complexities of the genome — the complete set of genetic or hereditary material of a living organism — and chronicles the remarkable breakthroughs that have taken place since the completion of the Human Genome Project more than a decade ago.


THE PAST

PHOTOGRAPH 51

a play by ANNA ZIEGLER
directed by CARYL BUTTERLEY

Encore Performance | A riveting and moving portrait of Rosalind Franklin, one of the great female scientists of the twentieth century, and the often-overlooked role she played in the discovery of the double helix. 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.

“A perfect science-history play, with all the hurtling momentum of a race towards discovery…” — Variety
