Everyone knows about the code-breaking genius of Alan Turing, but behind the mathematical genius lay a man of great passion.
Through his work, he gave himself to his nation and was hailed a hero. But privately, his life was a torment of desire and shame because of the cruel and draconian anti-homosexuality laws of that very same nation.
This new musical delves into Turing's youthful love of Christopher Morcom and how this shaped his life and work.
