Breaking The Code

September 10, 2022


Breaking the Code by Hugh Whitemore | September 8 – October 8, 2022

“Powerful, rivetting drama.” – N.Y. Daily News.

“Elegant and poignant.” – Time Magazine.

“The most important serious play of the season.” – Christian Science Monitor.

The play tells the story of Alan Turing, a brilliant mathematician, who devised the means of cracking the German Enigma code which helped win World War II. Meanwhile, he also “broke the code” by being unapologetically homosexual at a time when homosexuality was illegal in Great Britain. It was on Churchill’s specific instructions that Turing was given all the resources he required – and his personal behavior tolerated. However, the system eventually catches up with Alan.
