An exceptional biographical drama about a man who broke too many codes: the eccentric genius Alan Turing, who played a major role in winning World War II. He broke the complex German code called Enigma, enabling allied forces to foresee German maneuvers. Since his work was classified top secret for years after the war, no one knew how much was owed to him when he was put on trial for breaking another code: the taboo of homosexuality. Turing, who was also the first to conceive of computers, was convicted of the criminal act of homosexuality and sentenced to undergo hormone treatments which left him physically and mentally debilitated. He died by suicide, forgotten and alone. This play is about who he was, what happened to him, and why.
Co-production with CATCO. Tickets are now on sale.
CATCO, Evolution Theatre Co-Produce Breaking the Code Oct. 24-Nov. 11
Drama explores the genius, complexities of Alan Turing, computer science pioneer and WWII code breaker
Mathematical genius Alan Turing was a pioneer in the field of computer science and artificial intelligence, whose work breaking Nazi code during World War II saved countless lives and contributed to the Allied victory. His enormous contributions were classified, and therefore virtually unknown, when he was prosecuted for his homosexuality in 1952, a crime in the United Kingdom at the time.
He ultimately plummeted into ruin after his secret life was discovered and died at age 41. He was posthumously pardoned in 2013; the 2017 law that retroactively pardoned those prosecuted under the previous gross indecency law is referred to as the Alan Turing Law.
