Cast for BREAKING THE CODE announced. Performances begin January 24, 2018

 

Breaking the Code by Hugh Whitemore runs from January 24, 2018 to February 4, 2018.
The play 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 – moving, funny, and heart-breaking.
Evening performances are at 8 p.m. and both Sundays are 2 p.m. matinees.
