Sintesi dell'editore

Simon Templeman stars as brilliant mathematician Alan Turing, the man who cracked the German Enigma code and enabled the allies to win World War II. Shortly after, Turing was to find that the country he saved cared less about his genius and more about his sexual orientation.

Based on the book Alan Turing: The Enigma by Andrew Hodges.

Recorded before a live audience at the Skirball Cultural Center, Los Angeles in July, 2003.

Breaking the Code is part of L.A. Theatre Works’ Relativity Series featuring science-themed plays. Lead funding for the Relativity Series is provided by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation to enhance public understanding of science and technology in the modern world.

Recensioni editoriali

During WWII, the Nazis developed the supposedly unbreakable Enigma Code, which the British had to crack or risk losing the war. Brilliant mathematician Alan Turing succeeded and was highly praised by Churchill and awarded the OBE. But when his homosexuality was revealed, at a time when homosexuality was a crime in Britain, his career was destroyed. Turing eventually committed suicide. Whitemore's play revolves around breaking the code of silence about homosexuality, not really the Enigma Code. Dynamic production by L.A. Theatre Works turns what could have been a maudlin exposé into compelling theater.

Timeline Jumps Around, but Great Play

This was a play from the LA Theater Works about the brilliant mathematician Alan Turing. His work during WWII and breaking cypher codes contrasted with his homosexuality. His orientation caused the British government problems and was illegal for many years. He was later cleared posthumously. The play jumps about during many points of his life. It is based on a novel, which I have, but haven’t read yet. I will have to revisit this after reading the book. Great cast and production.
