"Photograph 51”, by Anna Ziegler, directed by Kit  Colbourn

Rosalind Franklin was a gifted research scientist who was part of the race to uncover the secrets of DNA in the 1950s. Her more famous contemporaries Watson and Crick took all the kudos for the discovery of the molecule’s double helix structure, yet it was Franklin’s skill with X-ray diffraction that first uncovered what’s called “the secret of life. The reading features: Casey Cuddy, Morgan Hallett, Andrew Langton, Kevin McCarthy, Keller Mickle, and Dylan Parkin.

Reading #2- Saturday, Mar 9 at 8pm, Sunday, Mar 10 matinee at 2pm.

“Silent Sky”, by Lauren Gunderson, directed by Christine Crawfis

A decade before women gained the right to vote, Henrietta Leavitt and her fellow women “computers” transformed the science of astronomy. While at the Harvard Observatory, Leavitt found 2,400 new variable stars and made important discoveries about their fluctuating brightness, enabling fellow scientists to map the Milky Way and beyond. Local talents include: MaryBeth Boylan, Dylan Parkin, Victoria Howland, Jenn Propfe, Catherine Rush, and Cynthia (Cindy) Topps.

CP2 Readers Theatre: is an exciting series at County Players which offers an opportunity for actors, directors, and audience members to experience theater in a fresh way: selected plays presented as full dramatic readings, no costumes, no sets, no props, and the actors perform with scripts in hand. These shows are an incredible opportunity to experience great theater stripped to its essence: the playwright’s words.
