Anna Ziegler’s award-winning play comes to Cambridge for the first time, following a sell-out West End debut in 2015.  It’s 1953, the race is on to uncover the secret of life, the structure of DNA. Biophysicist Rosalind Franklin is one of the few in the world able to capture an image of the mysterious structure. Does she realise she holds the key to the biggest scientific breakthrough of the 20th century? Will rival scientists beat her to it?  What kept Franklin out of the history books and Cambridge’s Watson and Crick in? A fast paced and ultimately moving play about ambition, ego and legacy.

The ADC Theatre is Britain's oldest University playhouse, today administered and maintained by the University of Cambridge. Plays have been presented on the site since 1855, when the Cambridge University Amateur Dramatic Club (CUADC) was founded, and the society met and performed in the back room of the Hoop Inn, which stood almost exactly where the ADC Theatre stands today.  Today, the ADC Theatre is the centre of University drama in Cambridge, run almost entirely by students with no Faculty involvement. 

This venue is wheelchair accessible.
