From tonight until Sunday, the Lowry theatre will be hosting That Is All You Need To Know.

It’s a play about some of the people that helped us win the Second World War.

One of those was mathematician Alan Turing, whose contribution was invaluable.

Sadly, he took his own life in Wilmslow at the age of 41, after being persecuted for his homosexuality.

Under the Rainbow spoke to Chris Bone, who takes the role of Alan in this production.

After being convicted for being homosexual, he was made to undergo chemical castration. He committed suicide shortly after, in 1954.

This year marks one hundred years since his birth. And a number of people are asking the government to pardon Alan.
