All remaining seasons in 2021 have now been postponed due to the impacts of the coronavirus. Even with the relaxing of restrictions in Victoria it would be impossible for us to safeguard our patrons attending the theatre for the remainder of the year.
We are all disappointed that these productions will not go ahead in 2021.
We will continue to monitor the situation and ensure that all our members and patrons are regularly informed about the developing situation through our web pages, Facebook pages, and newsletter emails.
We are currently planning an exciting performance program for 2022 with the expectation that shows will be able to be staged by February 2022.
Synopsis: Anna Ziegler’s Photograph 51 takes us back to 1950s London, where the discovery of the DNA double helix structure would unlock the ‘secret of life’, and Rosalind Franklin’s contribution would be overlooked for decades. This delicate play puts her back in the picture and shines a light on the challenges she faced as a woman in a male-dominated field and the price she paid.
Beyond the story, however, Photograph 51 reminds us of the shared intentions of art and science. Both seek to improve our understanding of the world around us, to make sense of life, test ideas and see things from another perspective. The results of these discoveries have the possibility to permanently alter our understanding of the world while continuing to feed our curiosity and pursuit of knowledge.
