The Universal Machine
a new musical about the life and death of Alan Turing
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 Foreces.
It's 1954. After being arrested for homosexuality and chemically castrated, Alan Turing is found dead at his home next to a half-eaten apple laced with cyanide.
This new musical charts Alan Turing's time at the infamous Station X at Bletchley Park and tells the whole story of one of the most important men in modern British history by travelling back into his past and looking forward to the tragedy of his future.
