PURE recounts the life and work of 20th century British mathematician Alan Turing, credited with creating the world's first computer. At a time when the basic principles of science are under threat in the US and beyond, PURE gives us a fresh window into the life of an oft-depicted (and pathologized) gay hero, focusing on Turing's broad philosophical questions about mathematics poetically interwoven with imagined conversations with those he loved.
Written by celebrated Filipino-American playwright Rey Pamatmat.
