 THE SHOW

This exceptional, Tony Award® nominated drama is about Alan Turing, the man who cracked the complex German Enigma code of World War II. Spanning many periods of his life, we meet those who influenced Alan – his boyhood friend Christopher, understanding mother Sara, colleague Pat Green, and mentor Dillwyn Knox. By 1952, Alan Turing is famous once again, but for a much different reason. Upon report of a robbery, the police find out that Alan committed the “criminal act” of homosexuality. Arrested, tried, and convicted by a British court, Alan is sentenced to physical and mental maltreatment. With a lack of trust for the country he once loved and unable to continue the work he voraciously believed in, Alan concludes his work with one final experiment – a true attempt to separate his psyche from the physical being.
