This play is entertaining and informative. It illuminated a life many don't know about at all. I thought it might be too "teachy and preachy", but it was funny, deep and very moving. I highly recommend it. The performances were wonderful.

Really enjoyed this. I wasn't familiar with Rosalind Franklin or any of the story behind the DNA structure race (glancing through the info in the program before the play started helped). I felt a little overwhelmed for the first few minutes, when...continued

Although life in a biology lab may sound dull to some, this story of how the teams evolved the structure of the DNA helix is terrific. Each actor defined their character well and stayed well in character, playing off each other very effectively. ...continued

My husband and I enjoyed this play enormously. The acting was uniformly good, with an especially fine performance by Becky Webber. Daniel Gidron gets excellent ensemble work from the cast; also the pacing is impeccable. We found that the play...continued

Really fun show. Only 6 actors, and they were able to all participate to tell this story nicely. The way the painted this scientist's life, and how her own decisions lead to future problems made the story feel really complete. Excellent acting,...continued

The story was great and the production was flawless. This is a story that needs to be shared. It hit home on so many levels, as we think many things have changed there are so many things that stay the same. It is a must see!

Excellent staging, very well acted, perfect venue for the play. The play itself is interesting, gives you a glimpse of history that you otherwise might not know. Very sad, frustrating story.

Excellent play that delves into the inner workings of one of the most important scientific discoveries ever. The actors portrayed both their roles and their narration very well. The program was very helpful in describing the scientific terms, so...continued

It was wonderful. Not being overly knowledgeable about this work in science, I found the play easy to understand. My husband who is a chemist also found it very well done even though he was quite familiar with the topic. Gosling gave the play...continued

This is a fascinating story, well-staged and wonderfully acted. There's more than one mystery here and unravelling the truth (or many truths) makes for an inspiring and compelling evening of theater.

This is my third positive experience with Central Square Theater, all through Goldstar. Though I'm not particularly a science person, this play was centered around a personal story and was engaging even for those of us who don't know DNA from a...continued

This is one of the best plays I've seen in quite some time. The acting and script were superb, but the most compelling was the story and it's layers upon layers of social implications. Bravo to all involved in this fine production!
