Pardon Me Alan Turing – 1 to 4 March 2018 – Bats Theatre Wellington

On the 6th July in New Zealand and 31st 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, 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 roller-coaster political comedy with bite. The real question to be asked though, can the slate ever be truly wiped clean?
