Breaking The Code
by Hugh Whitemore

6 — 13 Oct in the Studio

There will be an After Dark discussion following the 19:45 performance on Fri, 12th Oct. Free to ticket holders.

The remarkable mind and tragic fate of Alan Turing, mathematician and computer pioneer who broke the code in more ways than one. For cracking the German Enigma code at Bletchley Park during World War II, Turing was decorated by Churchill and lauded by the state. But for shattering the gentlemanly English code of sexual discretion and making little attempt to disguise his homosexuality lead to his arrest on the charge of gross indecency. Whitemore's play, shifts back and forth in time, constantly seeking to find a connection between the two events, whilst tackling major questions such as the relationship between mathematics and personal morals.
