Caught in the Net

A comedy by Ray Cooney

Directed by Brian Morton
Produced by Sondra Learn

A bigamist taxi driver John Smith keeps his two families in different parts of London, both happy and blissfully unaware of each other. However, his teenage children, a girl from one family and a boy from the other, have met on the Internet and are anxious to meet in person since they have so much in common; name, surname and taxi driving dad! Keeping them apart plunges John into a hell hole of his own making. His lodger Stanley could be a saviour, but he is about to go on holiday with his decrepit old father who turns up thinking he is already at the guest house. The situation spirals out of control as John juggles outrageously with the truth.

Breaking the Code

By Hugh Whitemore
Based on the book Alan Turing: The Enigma by Andrew Hodges

Directed by Tom Mackan
Produced by Michelle Spanik

An exceptional biographical drama about a man who broke too many codes. The eccentric genius Alan Turing played a major role in winning World War II; he broke the complex German code called Enigma, enabling allied forces to foresee German manoeuvres. Since his work was classified top secret for years after the war, no one knew how much was owed to him when he was convicted of breaking another code, one that today would hardly be worth reporting. Turing, who was also the first to conceive of computers, was hounded by overly zealous law enforcement and convicted of a “criminal act”. This play is about who he was, what happened to him and why.

“Powerful, riveting drama.”
– N.Y. Daily News.

“Elegant and poignant.”
– Time Magazine

Production Dates: February 5-6, 11-14*, 18-20 2010
