In Hugh Whitemore’s play, Simon Templeman stars as brilliant mathematician Alan Turing, the man who cracked the German Enigma code and enabled the Allies to win World War II. But Turing was to find that the country he saved cared less about his genius and more about his sexual orientation.
Based on the book ALAN TURING: THE ENIGMA by Andrew Hodges.
