Court Theatre has announced the full cast and design team for PHOTOGRAPH 51 by Anna Ziegler and directed by Vanessa Stalling.
The cast includes Chaon Cross (Rosalind Franklin), Alex Goodrich (James Watson), Nicholas Harazin (Francis Crick), Nathan Hosner (Maurice Wilkins), Gabriel Ruiz (Ray Gosling), and Yousof Sultani (Don Caspar).
The design team features Arnel Sancianco (scenic design), Mieka Van Der Ploeg (costume design), Keith Parham (lighting design), Jeffrey Levin (sound design), and Paul Deziel (projection design).
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.
PHOTOGRAPH 51 runs January 17 – February 17, 2019, at Court Theatre, 5535 S. Ellis Ave. For more information CourtTheatre.org.
