Our most recent Play Reading via Zoom was on Thursday 15th April, when we read Photograph 51 by Anna Ziegler.

If you would like to take part (either to read or just listen) in future play readings please let me know.  You will need to be a member of LGDC to take part, so if you’re not already a member please ask about joining.

April 15th – Photograph 51 by Anna Ziegler

Photograph 51 focuses on the often-overlooked role of the X-Ray crystallographer, Rosalind Franklin, in the discovery of the double helix structure of DNA whilst working at Kings College London. The title comes from Photo51, the nickname given to an X-ray diffraction image taken by Raymond Gosling in May, 1952, under the supervision of Rosalind Franklin.

in normal times…

Our informal play readings usually take place on the 2nd Wednesday of the month at 7.45pm in the Village Hall Committee Room. They give as an opportunity to enjoy a wide variety of plays throughout the year, some that we might consider performing or couldn’t perform for various practical reasons, and for us to become characters that we couldn’t possibly be on stage. All without having to learn any lines!

There’s no need to book – just come along and enjoy a glass of wine or cup of coffee, read a part or two, or just listen; you’ll be very welcome. For more information please contact me, Nan Newberry, on 01442 843155 or at
