Once upon a time, there was a boy called Alan who dreamed in Technicolor. In this modern take on the life of renowned codebreaker Alan Turing, electrifying music and a surreal text take us to the heart of a genius who longed for connection in a world he couldn’t understand. The psychedelic and strange weave together to create a deeply human story of love, loss, creation, and destruction. Find the man behind the machines in this rich fantasy of poisoned apples, loving robots, and the father of the modern computer. Regional Premiere.


Don’t miss the show critics have called:

“…a jolting dose of adrenaline to the heart and brain.” – Chicago Tribune, 2013

“…a necessary testament of injustice and of transcendent love that deserves to be heard and seen.” – Long Beach Post, 2014

“…a psychological, metaphoric and often fantastical rendering of Turing’s life.” – Signal Tribune, 2014

“Alan Turing’s story is a tragedy; Pink Milk is a love story.” – The Fourth Walsh, 2013
