Breaking the Code
By Hugh Whitemore
Production by arrangement with Origin™ Theatrical, on behalf of Samuel French, LTD
A true and personal story of Alan Turing, the brilliant young mathematician whose cipher machine cracked the Nazi's Enigma Code and won Britain the war, but whose personal life – he was openly gay at a time when it was illegal in Britain – overshadowed his incredible success.
This classic play intertwines an account of Turing's most heroic hour with the story of his betrayal and neglect by the nation he had helped in its darkest hour.
