This musical, composed by Joel Goodman and Jan Osborne, with a new script by Joan Greening is a journey through the extraordinary life of Alan Turing.

Alan was a genius whose brilliant code-breaking brain saved approximately fourteen million lives in WW2. This musical takes us on a journey through the loss of his closest friend, his romance with a fellow worker, the moment he realises how to beat the Germans, and the growing awareness of his homosexuality. His treatment after the war was truly appalling and this brilliant, funny man was left in despair.

This production is brought to you by a tiny production company with a big heart. Less than a year ago this musical debuted in a village hall and has now successfully toured to Edfringe in 2022, The King’s Head Theatre London, The Town and Gown Cambridge, and also The Hub in Lichfield. Tour dates have been confirmed across the UK well into 2024.
