"We were so powerful. Our instruments felt like extensions of our own bodies. We could see everything, really see it—except, sometimes, what was right in front of us."

In 1951, chemist Rosalind Franklin works relentlessly in her King’s College London lab, closing in on a major discovery that could unlock the mysteries of the DNA molecule. Undermined by her colleague Maurice Wilkins, she struggles to compete with rival team Watson and Crick as pressure intensifies to produce results. Anna Zeigler's "rich, complex, and moving" (The Chicago Tribune) play honors the monumental contribution of one scientist with two X chromosomes whom history nearly left behind. Second-year MFA director Amanda Rountree makes her UW Drama mainstage debut.
