Event info

Start Time: 7.30pm

Description

“the production of #BreakingTheCode by Hugh Whitemore about the Bletchley Park genius Alan Turing is quite exceptional - and with a stunning performance by Richard Jack at its beating heart” – writer Michael Chaplin, People’s Theatre President

“Breaking the Code is a funny, emotional, heartrending play … the best performance yet from The People’s Theatre. It runs until Saturday. You should not miss it.” Break A Leg

At the height of the Second World War, brilliant young mathematician Alan Turing was a key figure in breaking the Enigma code used by the Nazis. In the aftermath of victory, Turing returned to academic life but his dreams were left unfulfilled as his private sexual life fell afoul of social attitudes in 1950s Britain.

Whitemore’s gripping drama is a tender portrait of a modern tragedy.
