Alan TuringFrom the moment that we began working on To Kill a Machine the legacy of Alan Turing has been uppermost to all of us. We are thrilled and overwhelmed to have the support of Alan Turing’s family.

“I thoroughly enjoyed watching To Kill a Machine. I was totally captivated by the performance of Alan Turing by Gwydion Rhys. He played the part with great sensitivity and understanding of his character. It was a pleasure to see the true generosity and kindness in Alan’s character being well illustrated throughout the play.

The play explores well Alan’s commitment to his work and the country to which he served and also covers the turmoil in his mind with his sexuality. The last highly emotional scene shows the tremendous suffering of Alan Turing inflicted on him by the Government, for which he had worked so hard and achieved so much.

In summary To Kill a Machine is a sensitive and realistic portrayal of the complex character of Alan Turing. I would thoroughly recommend seeing this play.”

Rachel Barnes
Great niece of Alan Turing

“This is a continuously stimulating evening with some truly great acting at its heart. While the play could usefully evolve further it is a show that deserves full houses throughout its short run, and a developing future beyond.”

“What lifts this show upwards again to a ‘four-star’ rating is the stature of the key performances and the central one above all, which is truly remarkable. Rhys manages to capture Turing’s sense of intellectual abstraction and his intense vulnerability and weave them into a compellingly coherent whole. It is a beautifully detailed performance – the element of a slight stammer here, a nervous laugh there, and a resplendently translucent sincerity whether expressed in his intellectual ardour and determination or in a pent-up, tensed sensuality graphically released in a sex scene that was absolutely necessary, and an element of his story that is too often airbrushed away into a halo of sainthood”

“This human subject still retains the power to trouble and inspire us, while also posing large intellectual questions on the nature of intelligence and human thought and machines that are at the heart of who we are in 2016.”

*****
“Script and direction are equally to be praised for an exploration of Alan Turing’s life and career that is as full of insight and individuality as it is of respectful curiosity.”

“Gwydion Rhys’ focused and detailed central performance reconciles Turing’s mathematical genius and social incompetence in a complex, infuriating and compelling character with whom the audience is fully involved at every moment.”

“The greatest joy of this production, though, is that it is ensemble theatre at its best: Rick Yale, Francois Pandolfo and Robert Harper create minor characters who are never minor; the company of four are equally essential to this physical and emotional world that never stops convincing or shocking, regardless of whether the scene content is mathematical or sexual.”

“Not to be missed”

The Remote Goat http://www.remotegoat.com/uk/review/12681/thoughtful-and-physical-ensemble-theatre/

“An impressive celebration of the genius of Turing and a timely reminder that it would be an injustice to forget how horrifically he was treated by the country that he had helped to save.”

****
“To Kill a Machine is a poignant piece of theatre that explores the history of one of Britain’s most wrongly accused victims. With magnificent performances from a small, yet capable cast alongside fantastic direction from Angharad Lee, To Kill a Machine makes for sensational drama. What is the difference between man and machine? Head over to the Kings Head Theatre to find out for yourself.”

*** “I found myself longing for more time with Gwydion Rhys’ deceptively moving performance as the brittle, unchangeably other Turing; romanticising the men in his life with a doomed, dreamer’s naivety.”

***** “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 of keeping and revealing secrets. The play examines his pioneering work considering whether a machine could think, asking the questions “what 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 and the importance of freedom, 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.

Created in 2012, Aberystwyth based Scriptography Productions looks to support and develop writers, find new platforms for text based work to be produced and encourage cross disciplinary collaborations. It seeks to engage new audiences for work through choice of subject matter and through cross disciplinary, multi-platform work and through enhanced marketing and digital engagement. Scriptography Productions is an associate company at Aberystwyth Arts Centre.

“asks devastating questions about the ways in which societies dehumanise those they deem deviant” The Scotsman

The cast includes Gwydion Rhys, Francois Pandolfo, Rick Yale and Robert Harper. It is directed by Angharad Lee and produced by Sandra Bendelow for Scriptography Productions.

After a bombastic, exciting and innovative 45th year, the King’s Head continues its new artistic policy of being a crucible of new writing and critical rediscoveries, whilst also welcoming the much-anticipated return of pub opera, with the aim of being the best pub theatre in London. The King’s Head offers an unashamedly broad church of programming including theatre, musical theatre and opera, transfers to and from the biggest arts festivals in the world, and a trail-blazing policy of ethical employment on the fringe – if it’s on here, you won’t see it anywhere else.

The play was awarded an Arts Council Wales grant in 2015 for production and touring and also selected as part of the Wales in Edinburgh scheme to take the best of Welsh Theatre to the festival. It sold out throughout the run at Edinburgh Festival and earned critical acclaim alongside being longlisted for the Amnesty International Freedom of Expression Award. It is a co-production with Cwmni Theatr Arad Goch who provided invaluable support to help the brand new company produce the play as their very first project.

The play was nominated for four Wales Theatre Awards, Best Actor for Gwydion Rhys, Best Playwright for Catrin Fflur Huws, Best Director for Angharad Lee and Best Production.

KillMachine2099w

An interview with arts producer and playwright Sandra Bendelow about the recent production of new play To Kill a Machine which will be heading to Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August to be part of the Zoo Venues programme.

KillMachine2084wHow did you get involved in the project?
Back in 2011 I was selected as writer to be part of the Sherman Cymru and Aberystwyth Arts Centre Spread The Word project along with Catrin so I was in the room when she first pitched the idea. I remember thinking what an amazing idea it was for a play not just because it was about Alan Turing but also the idea Catrin had for how she was going to tell that story. Then after Catrin wrote the short play she decided she wanted to write it into a full length play and approached me to help her produce it. She did just want to write it and put it on for one night in Aberystwyth but I could see the potential for it to be a huge project. I pushed to get it out there as a pilot project in 2012 – we took it to a science cafe event at Swansea University celebrating the centenary of Alan Turing’s birth. It was at this event that I realised exactly how incredible the play was – the audience was entirely computer scientists and mathematicians who worshipped Alan Turing. Also they were incredibly defensive of the Alan Turing legacy because of how badly he had been treated by society, government and history. It was incredibly exciting and terrifying at the same time. But they absolutely loved the play, as a play about Alan Turing and also because of the way Catrin embeds his work into the play.

 

How did the tour go?
We had incredible responses from audiences and also from critics. It’s had brilliant reviews which is always great to get for a show; the writing, the performances, the direction, the set – all getting exceptionally positive responses. But also the audience response has just been so fantastic. It’s not an easy play to watch – but it does have lots of humour and endearing moments which the audiences loved. We have so many people commenting on how extraordinary Gwydion Rhys is as Alan Turing. Catrin’s writing has been compared to Beckett, as feedback for a writer goes, I don’t think it gets better than that. Most importantly we have shown a side of Alan Turing’s story which has not been told before and we have made people really think. It seems to working really well as a play in the very intimate spaces like Arcola in London which bodes well for Edinburgh as the space we are in at Zoo, The Aviary is very similar. I think that in a small space what Alan Turing endures and is subjected to during the course of the play is literally too close for comfort. I’ve watched the play countless times and I cry every time I see it. The only thing that varies is the point at which I start crying. Alan Turing’s life story is just so heartbreaking.

 

KillMachine2137wAs Alan Turing’s story became more well known – with the government pardon and the Hollywood film – what do you think makes this telling of the story so unique.
Catrin’s telling of the story doesn’t shy away from telling it the way it should be told. It doesn’t simplify the story or shy away from the harsher elements of it like the gross indecency conviction and the chemical castration. Also though she has written Turing as she sees him, a fun loving and highly humorous man who made friends, worked well with colleagues and who fell deeply in love as a young boy with Christopher Morcam. Christopher tragically died young but Turing carried that love with him for the rest of his life and at the heart of Catrin’s play is an incredibly touching and beautiful love story. The cast we have are just amazing alongside Gwydion Rhys as Alan Turing we have Rick Yale, Francois Pandolfo and Robert Harper playing about 15 characters between them – the cast never leave the stage so we watch them transform from character to character which is mesmerising. One of my favourite moments of the play is when Rick steps from the Game Show Host into Arnold Murray. It is directed by Angharad Lee and her impact on the play and Catrin’s re-development was hugely significant – adding a visual and very physical aspect to the play.


What is next for To Kill a Machine?
We head to Edinburgh Fringe Festival for the whole three weeks of the festival where will be meetings lots of programmers from venues and festivals in the UK and all around the world. We have had interest expressed already about touring the play to international festivals.  It is all a bit surreal that as a small company from Aberystwyth this time next year we could be embarking on a world tour with the play. But then it is a really great play and we want as many people as possible to see it.

 

What is next for Scriptography Productions?
I do sometime wonder what we will do next, how will we ever find a project to produce as good as this one? But we are about to start the search for the next To Kill a Machine, the next idea that we can develop over a few years and eventually produce and tour. It is going to be a really difficult play to follow. But we’re confident that somewhere out there in Aberystwyth a writer has an idea that will eventually become an amazing play.

To Kill a Machine written by Catrin Fflur Huws, produced by Scriptography Productions, performed by Gwydion Rhys, Rick Yale, Francois Pandolfo and Robert Harper, directed by Angharad Lee will be at Zoo: Aviary Venue 124  7th – 31st August 8.55 PM

New company with new play heads to Cardiff and Edinburgh

To Kill a Machine: Scriptography Productions

An Aberystwyth based company Scriptography Productions has achieved unprecedented levels of  success with its first ever touring production of a new play about Alan Turing.

Following a tour of Wales, and a performance at The Arcola in London, during which its overwhelmingly positive reviews included, “a sensational piece of theatre”, “absorbing and provocative” and “a hard-hitting look at the nature of humanity” the new play by Welsh playwright Catrin Fflur Huws the company will be visiting Cardiff’s Gate Arts Centre before heading to Edinburgh Fringe Festival for three weeks at the Zoo Aviary venue.

The production was funded by Arts Council Wales including being selected for one of only ten Wales in Edinburgh awards to take the best of arts in Wales to the festival, it was also supported by a worldwide kickstarter funding campaign with avid Alan Turing fans supporting the portrayal of their hero.

The main role of Alan Turing is played by Gwydion Rhys in an astounding performance alongside ensemble of Rick Yale, Francois Pandolfo and Robert Harper who between them play 14 characters covering the range of friends and colleagues throughout Alan Turing’s life.

The play covers a vast range of Alan Turing’s life story from his early school days and the tragic love story of Alan and Christopher Morcam, through to his days at Cambridge, Bletchley Park, Manchester University and his arrest for gross indecency before his tragic early death.

The play is beloved by computer scientists not only for its endearing, humorous and realistic portrayal of Alan Turing but the embedding of Turing’s own words and works within a macabre and grotesque game show sequence which runs through the play.

It was produced in association with Cwmni Arad Goch who supported and mentored the company through rehearsal and production and made it possible for the new company to achieve such astonishing success with its first touring production.

Scriptography productions is also an associate company at Aberystwyth Arts Centre who are supporting the production at Edinburgh Fringe festival as one of two Arts Centre associate companies to have secured Wales in Edinburgh funding to visit the festival. Both of these productions, To Kill a Machine and Gwyn Embertons will be at Zoo Venue .

To Kill a Machine will be at Gate Arts Centre on Friday 31st July and will be at Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Zoo Aviary, Venue 124 from 7th – 31st August with performances every night except the Tuesday of each week.

To Kill a Machine posterW

To Kill a Machine opens tonight at Arad Goch, Bath St, Aberystwyth Wednesday 6th May, ahead of performances tomorrow Thursday 7th May and Friday 8th May before we start our tour of Wales at Theatr  Brycheiniog on Saturday 9th May.

We are very excited to finally be able to share this stunning new play by Aberystwyth playwright Catrin Fflur Huws about Alan Turing which focuses on his heartbreaking life story. Not enough people know his story and of those who do not enough is known about the tragic circumstances of his life and death and we are very proud to be able to be part of the legacy Alan Turing deserves.

Alan Turing is played by Gwydion Rhys, The Betray is played by Rick Yale, The Friend by Francois Pandolfo and The Interrogator by Robert Harper. The play is directed by Angharad Lee.

Today marks the start of a new journey for this play which began three years ago as a short play as part of the Aberystwyth Arts Centre and Sherman Cymru Spread the Word project.

For the last three weeks Arad Goch has made the company extremely welcome and provided a home for the company to develop and prepare this innovative and unique piece of theatre with audiences. They have provided us not only a space to work in but their invaluable expertise and support at every stage of development.

We genuinely believe that this play will make audiences cry and laugh for many years to come, it will make people understand far more about why Alan Turing is a hero to so many, it will make people think about the treatment inflicted on him then and on the way we behave to one another today.

We hope you will be able to see the play as it tours and we would love to hear what you think of it – please get in touch @scriptography
