It's 1927. Young Alan Turing is at school developing the work of Einstein and Newton while doing anything to get out of PE. It's 1942. Newly engaged Alan Turing has done the impossible and broken the Nazi Naval Enigma Machine and secured the Battle of the Atlantic for the Allied Forces. It's 1954. After being arrested, Alan Turing is found dead at his home next to a half-eaten apple laced with cyanide. The Universal Machine tells Alan Turing's dense life story from his school days at Sherbourne, his time at the infamous Station X at Bletchley Park during World War Two, and his arrest for homosexuality and tragic death. This complex re-examination of Alan's life and work tells the story of a man who could make machines think but struggled to make connections with those around him.
Written and directed by PIT and New Diorama Artistic Director David Byrne with music composed by Night Engine's Dominic Brennan with movement from Gecko Theatre's Associate Director Rich Rusk, The Universal Machine is part of the Alan Turing Centenary Celebrations.
