Breaking the Code by Hugh Whitemore tells the personal and true story of Alan Turing. He was a genius mathematician and engineer in Britain who played a leading role in winning World War II. He created a machine that decoded the Nazi’s secret messages, thereby ending World War II early and saving 12 million lives. He also created the first computer. Since his work was classified as top secret for years after the war, the general public knew nothing of him when he was arrested for homosexuality. He was sentenced to undergo hormone treatments that left him physically and mentally impaired. Alone and forgotten, he committed suicide. Whitemore’s play begins in 1952 and flashes back to illuminate important elements in his life. It’s a riveting, powerful drama. It is the same story as the award-winning film “The Imitation Game,” but it’s focus is on his personal life not his professional successes. It’s a well-constructed drama with excellent acting roles, moving, funny, and heart-breaking.

The film will be shown at the Wilke Family Life Center @First United Methodist Church on Thursday, Oct. 19 at 5:45 and again Oct. 20 at 6:45.

Villagers in a tiny Tuscan town come up with a remarkable way to confront their issues: they turn their lives into a play. Every summer, their piazza becomes a stage and residents of all ages play a part — the role of themselves. Monticchiello’s annual tradition has attracted worldwide attention and kept the town together for 50 years, but with an aging population and a future generation more interested in Facebook than farming, the town’s 50th anniversary performance might be its last. 1hr 31 min
