Music by Meg McGrady
Lyrics by Zoe Morris
This new musical focuses on the story of Rosalind Franklin, a female Jewish scientist key to the discovery of the structure of DNA. During the race to discover DNA, Watson and Crick got access to her data without her consent which significantly contributed to their discovery of DNA's structure.
Long after Rosalind's death, Watson is set to publish his new book 'The Double Helix', which presents a sexist and inaccurate representation of Rosalind along with revealing that they had access to her data. It's down to Rosalind's friend, Anne Sayre, to try and stop the publication of the book to protect her friends legacy.
This show was first premiered at Signal, a night of new musical theatre curated by Adam Lenson, and is still in the early stages of development.
