BREAKING THE CODE

By Hugh Whitemore
Directed by Kirsten Brandt

London and Broadway were taken by storm when Derek Jacobi performed 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 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 Turing for his code work (and being the first to conceive of computers in the process) when he was put on trial for breaking another code – the taboo of homosexuality – and convicted for this as a criminal act. NY actor David Arrow, seen in Jewel’s special event performance of RFK, as well as WOMAN IN MIND and ENTER THE GUARDSMAN, plays Alan Turing in this elegant and poignant play.
