    Academy Award winner Kidman stars as British scientist Rosalind Franklin at the Noel Coward Theatre from 5 September, with opening night 14 September, running until 21 November.

    Michael Grandage will direct, returning to the West End for this first time since his Michael Grandage season finished in 2014, also at the Noel Coward Theatre. It featured Judi Dench and Ben Whishaw in Peter And Alice, Daniel Radcliffe in The Cripple Of Inishmaan, Sheridan Smith and David Walliams in A Midsummer Night's Dream, and Jude Law in Henry V.

    Exploring Franklin, the woman who cracked DNA, Photograph 51 tells the story of a precious photograph and the race against time that Franklin faces to unlock the secret of life before her rival scientists.

    It has been more than 15 years since Nicole Kidman was last seen on the West End stage in The Blue Room at the Donmar Warehouse in 1998. An award-winning actress best known for her extensive film roles, Kidman's screen credits include Days of Thunder, To Die For, Eyes Wide Shut, Moulin Rouge!, The Others, The Hours, Dogville, Cold Mountain, Birth, The Interpreter, Happy Feet, The Golden Compass, Australia, Nine, Rabbit Hole, The Paperboy, Hemingway & Gellhorn, Grace Of Monaco and Paddington.

    Grandage recently worked with Kidman on biographical drama film Genius, which is released later this year. The former Donmar Warehouse Artistic Director will also direct Dawn French in the West End transfer of her solo show 30 Million Minutes.
