Pardon Me Alan Turning

Dare You Theatre

Wednesday 14 – Saturday 17 February, 7pm

The Actors’ Program Studio  Samoa House, 283 Karangahape Road, Newton

On the 6th of July in New Zealand, and the 31st of January 2017 in the UK, gay men were posthumously pardoned under a new law. But is it that easy? Is this what these men deserve?

An eccentric Alan Turing, a flamboyant Oscar Wilde, and their modern-day prince, meet across the centuries to ask those very questions. They are joined by a host of other colourful characters in this rollercoaster political comedy with bite.

The real question to be asked though; can the slate ever be truly wiped clean?

“If you want hard-hitting drama and to get into a serious discussion about LGBTI rights in both the past and present, watch Pardon me Alan Turing … the play is a must-see.” –
