Theatre With Teeth

An innovative reinterpretation of how biography is portrayed. Combining elements of Brechtian and physical theatre, the five person cast immerse the audience in the world of Rosalind Franklin, unappreciated discoverer of the double helix, reliving her life and the acquaintances she met along the way. A visual delight, the play looks at complex and potentially dull topics and makes them accessible to all. Using a selection of props as metaphors for unfolding events and an inventive soundtrack, the cast cleverly converts one woman’s curiosity and intense adherence to her work into a spectacle of light, sound and movement. Not just for fans of science, this is recommended to all who are looking for something different at the festival.
