9780573690860: Breaking the Code

Drama / 7m, 2f / Unit set

Derek Jacobi took London and Broadway by storm in this exceptional biographical drama about a man who broke too many codes: the eccentric genius Alan Turing who played a major role in winning the World War II; he broke the complex German code called Enigma, enabling allied forces to foresee German maneuvers. Since his work was classified top secret for years after the war, no one knew how much was owed to him when he was put on trial for breaking another code the taboo against homosexuality. Turing, who was also the first to conceive of computers, was convicted of the criminal act of homosexuality and sentenced to undergo hormone treatments which left him physically and mentally debilitated. He died a suicide, forgotten and alone. This play is about who he was, what happened to him and why.

"Powerful, rivetting drama." N.Y. Daily News

"Elegant and poignant." Time Magazine

"The most important serious play of the season." Christian Science Monitor

His work has twice been named Best Single TV drama by the Broadcasting Press Guild, he has received the Scripter Prize in Hollywood, the Script Prize at the 1998 Monte Carlo Festival and a special Communications Award from the American Mathematical Society.

From AudioFile:

During WWII, the Nazis developed the supposedly unbreakable Enigma Code, which the British had to crack or risk losing the war. Brilliant mathematician Alan Turing succeeded and was highly praised by Churchill and awarded the OBE. But when his homosexuality was revealed, at a time when homosexuality was a crime in Britain, his career was destroyed. Turing eventually committed suicide. Whitemore's play revolves around breaking the code of silence about homosexuality, not really the Enigma Code. Dynamic production by L.A. Theatre Works turns what could have been a maudlin exposé into compelling theater. M.T.B. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
