- Breaking the Code
Play by English playwright and screenwriter Hugh Whitemore.
"The heart-breaking true story of Alan Turing, the mathematical genius who cracked the German Enigma code and helped Britain win Would War II and widely considered the father of modern computing.
Openly gay in a time when homosexuality was illegal in Great Britain, his behaviour was tolerated and Churchill gave him every resource needed to crack the code. But once the war was over, the system caught up with him as his superiors began to regard him as a security risk.
This play tells the story of Turing's times at Bletchley Park and Manchester University, the family who supported him, the people he loved and lost, and the colleagues who admired him. It's a fascinating drama about someone grappling with the scientific and personal sides of his personality, and the troubled life of a creative thinker who helped shape the 20th Century."
