Come along on Saturday 12th October for an evening at the Tower theatre to see the play 'Breaking the Code', the story of Alan Turing.

About the play
Alan Turing was recently voted the ultimate icon of the 20th century, and will be the new face on the £50 note. Best known for his work in breaking the German Enigma code, he is also considered to be the father of modern computer science. Yet his achievements were overshadowed by his conviction for gross indecency, after breaking the establishment code by flaunting his homosexuality at a time when it was illegal.

Breaking The Code skilfully interweaves different timescales and the key elements of Turing's life to provide a gripping and moving picture of this genius and pioneer.
