When esteemed biologist Rosalind Franklin took Photograph 51 in 1951, it changed the course of the discovery of DNA forever. Statistics shows the side-by-side stories of two female scientists, separated by half a century, embroiled in their own races against the clock. Rosalind Franklin struggles against misogyny while current-day premedical student Rose Andersson fights cutthroat competition for medical school admission. In their darkest moments, they form a connection of grit, perseverance, and love for their field. Winner of the 2020 Adams Prize for Musical Theatre, Statistics highlights an underrepresented historical figure and the beauty in scientific discovery.

Sensory description

The light is bright and cool to capture the feel of a laboratory and university classroom. Our live band will be playing violin, cello, clarinet, bass, piano, and drums. The music is performed in a contemporary jazz style. Most actors, as well as the band, will be wearing white lab coats. Some characters will be wearing costumes that evoke a 1950s professional feel, while others are dressed in modern attire. The show can easily be enjoyed by people who are sighted and/or blind/vision impaired as much of the emotion comes through with the dialogue and the music.
