In 1952, the race to determine the existence of the double helix was at a fervent peak. The one in the lead: Rosalind Franklin, a fiercely independent British scientist who took the first clear photograph of the DNA molecule. In this biographical examination of her life, playwright Anna Ziegler explores the controversy surrounding the significance of the contribution of this image to the work of Watson and Crick, as well as the methods by which they obtained it. Begging the question -- did Franklin get the credit she deserved?
