Breaking the Code, Hugh Whitemore’s elegant and deeply moving play about brilliant British mathematician Alan Turing, reveals connections between his cracking of the Nazi’s “unbreakable” Engima Code and his refusal to live a closeted life. Turing’s expansive spirit embraced seeming contradiction: gay man and war hero, marathon runner and Disney film fan; he envisioned a ’universal machine" and set the stage for modern computer technology. Directed by Adam Zahler, starring Allyn Burrows as Turing, and featuring URT Artistic Director Debra Wise.
