A new dose of Viagra will be supplied to the London stage by Nicole Kidman

Nicole Kidman, whose briefly naked debut performance in David Hare’s play “The Blue Room” caused an unreal sensation in 1998 and was called “pure theatrical Viagra”, is to come back to London in a “Photograph 51″.

17 years after her phenomenal West End debut, the Hollywood actress will return to the London stage to play British scientist, Rosalind Franklin, in a Michael Grandage production of Anna Ziegler’s “Photograph 51″.

That name of this play is given to an x-ray image, which revealed the double-helix shape of DNA in 1953. From that moment had begun the crucial starting point for research of the two scientists, Crick and Watson, who identified how DNA was structured. Photograph 51 tells us the story of Franklin, who was the chemist overseeing the original discovery and made that x-ray image, but has been relatively overlooked by history, since her contribution was ignored and the Nobel Prize was given to Crick and Watson mentioned above.

Nicole Kidman has been searching for an appropriate project to mark her return to the London stage, and had been in negotiations to appear in Turgenev’s “A Month in The Country”, adapted by Patrick Marber.

Life and other work have conspired to keep me away but I’m determined to make at least one of the proposals work

– said the actress last year.

Grandage said that a quarter of all the tickets for the run, over 20,000 tickets, will cost just £10, continuing his commitment to stage productions of the highest quality at affordable prices.

“Photograph 51″ will be staged at the Noel Coward Theater and run from September 14 until November 21.
