  • Photograph 51 - Nicole Kidman
Nicole Kidman returns to the West End for the first time in 17 years!

Kidman will star in Photograph 51, a play by Anna Ziegler about the true life events of a young female scientist, as part of the Michael Grandage Company.

Kidman will take the leading role of Rosalind Franklin, an English chemist and crystallographer who made fundamental contributions to the discovery of DNA after looking at a photograph she had taken.

Sacrificing so much in pursuit of science, Kidman will portray a women dedicated to her work who’s place in history lasted much longer than her lifespan.

The show will be directed by Michael Grandage, with further casting yet to be announced.
