Idle Motion present "That is All You Need to Know"     

Idle Motion present Aberystwyth Arts Centre 7.30pm, Tuesday 23 June. 2015

During World War Two, the grounds of Bletchley Park housed some of Britain’s greatest minds.

Total Theatre Award nominated Idle Motion will take you back to 1940s England, to the eccentric country house whose grounds, filled with chess champions, Oxbridge graduates and young debutantes, was the melting pot of Britain’s greatest minds. 

Among these were the visionary Alan Turing, the exceptional Gordon Welchman and the thousands of dynamic women whose work was the hidden heroism of the war.

Decades later, as Bletchley’s secrets begin to be revealed, another group of ground breaking volunteers gather to save the home of the Enigma code breakers.

Using personal testimony and multimedia on a stage busy with filing cabinets and typewriters, this is an insightful, innovative and immersive celebration of the people whose hidden heroism changed the course of history on a stage busy with filing cabinets and typewriters.

Developed in association with The Lowry, Jacksons Lane, Greenwich Theatre and Redbridge Drama Centre, this piece is a celebration of humanities ability to solve the impossible, to crack the most complex of problems, and of the extraordinary people whose quiet work changed the course of our history.

“That is All You Need to Know is a gripping and taut piece of theatre
worthy of its subject.”
The Oxford Times
