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.

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.
