This event has probably been and gone!
Written by Stephen Lunt
Directed by Patrick Graham
On the 24th December 2013, computer pioneer and codebreaker Alan Turing was given a posthumous royal pardon. On the 25th May 1895 Oscar Wilde was convicted and sentenced to two years' hard labour for the same crime: gross indecency. But where is his pardon? And where is the pardon for the other seventy-five thousand men convicted under the same law? 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 roller-coaster political comedy with bite. The real question to be asked though, can the slate ever truly be wiped clean?
Presented as part of Auckland Pride festival 10 - 26 February 2017, and Auckland Fringe festival from 21st February - 12th March 2017.
