An Extraordinary Light

An Extraordinary Light tells the story of scientist Rosalind Franklin, who in the 1950s played a significant role in the  discovery of the structure of DNA. Yet while the three men she worked with went on to be awarded a Nobel Prize, Franklin remained all-but forgotten for decades. The play explores the dedication and determination that drove Rosalind Franklin to be one of the sharpest scientific minds of her age. Written by Rob Johnston winner of The Kings Cross Award for new Writing (Einstein's Daughter). Performed by Katherine Godfrey.
