Breaking The Code

Performance times: 
Tuesday 13 April - Saturday 17 April 2010, 19:45

Based on the book Alan Turing, The Enigma by Andrew Hodges

This compassionate and amusing play revolves around the remarkable mind and tragic fate of mathematician and computer pioneer Alan Turing, who 'broke the code' in two ways. One was by cracking the German Enigma code at Bletchley Park during World War II, for which he was decorated by Churchill and lauded by the state. The second was by shattering the gentlemanly English code of sexual discretion and making little attempt to disguise his homosexuality. For this he was arrested on a charge of gross indecency.

Combined Actors are delighted to bring Whitemore’s play, which is a wonderful homage to an extraordinary man and a fierce indictment of the hypocrisy of the society that he saved from occupation, to the ADC stage.
