A little about the show…
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?
To round out the 2011-2012 season, Vermont Stage is finishing with William Shakespeare’s As You Like It! The show runs through May 6th at Flynn Space in Burlington, Vermont.
Last night was the photo-call for Vermont Stage’s latest production, Shirley Valentine. Here’s what Vermont Stage has posted about the show:
Originally produced by Middlebury Actors Workshop at Town Hall Theater in Middlebury, VT
Shirley Valentine was once an anti-establishment rebel, but now that she is a middle-aged housewife she finds herself suffocating under the banality of her suburban routine. When her best friend, Jane, wins an all-expenses-paid vacation to an exotic country, Shirley is given the opportunity to travel to faraway places and begins to see her future in a different light. Written by award-winning playwright Willy Russell, Shirley Valentine is a hilarious and poignant story about one woman’s struggle to reinvigorate her life.
