Drama / 7m, 2f / Unit set
Derek Jacobi took London and Broadway by storm in this
exceptional biographical drama about a man who broke too many
codes: the eccentric genius Alan Turing who played a major role in
winning the 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 against 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 a
suicide, forgotten and alone. This play is about who he was, what
happened to him and why.
