*****“a much more hard-hitting and accurate look at the life and work of Alan Turing than much of the sanitised films that have been doing the rounds” Wales Online


To Kill a Machine tells the life-story of war-time cryptanalyst Alan Turing. It is a story about the importance of truth and injustice and about the importance of keeping and of revealing secrets.

The play examines his pioneering work considering whether a machine could think asking the questions: what then is the difference between a human and a machine and if a human is prevented from thinking, do they then become a machine?

At the heart of the play is a powerful love story which questions the meaning of humanity, and the importance of freedom and considers how these questions are played out in relation to Turing's own life, death and posthumous re-evaluation. It is the story of Turing the genius, Turing the victim and Turing the constant, in a tumultuous world.


To Kill a Machine is written by Catrin Fflur Huws and Directed by Angharad Lee


*****“one of the most finely crafted hours of theatre you’ll find on the Fringe" Edinburgh Evening News

The play was also longlisted for the Amnesty International Freedom of Expression Award for Edinburgh Fringe.
