Back in November 2010 T2c raved about Anna Ziegler’s new play Photograph 51 and it’s lead actress Rosalind Franklin. This play presented by the Ensemble Studio Theatre was mostly ignored by the award circuit, but I had championed the play and have followed it’s progression. In 2011 there were rumors at the Tribeca Film Festival that Madeline Stowe had bought the project for film. Then in 2015 Nicole Kidman and Photograph 51 came to London and won rave reviews. Now they have taken the WhatsonStage Award for Best Play and Best Actress.
