Breaking The Code tells the story of the life of Alan Turing, who this year has been voted ‘The Greatest Icon of the 20th Century’.

This biographical drama, described by Time Magazine as ‘elegant and poignant’, unravels the story of a mathematically brilliant man who’s work in computer science highly influenced the computers of today.

Exploring the personal life of Alan Turing, whose sexuality played a major part in his downfall.  Living in a time when homosexuality was completely illegal, his celebrity from developing the first computing machines which helped to secure the country’s future in the second world war was turned against him with catastrophic results.

A well-researched production with a stunning and talented cast.
