Next at The Marco... Breaking the Code By Hugh Whitemore The exceptional biographical drama about a man who broke too many codes: the eccentric genius Alan Turing who played a major role in winning World War II. Turing broke the German Enigma code, enabling allied forces to foresee German maneuvers, but his work was classified top secret for years after the war and very few knew the debt he was owed when he was put on trial for breaking another code - the taboo against homosexuality. Turing, 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. This play is about who he was, what happened to him and why.
