It's always a bit of a challenge to read a play without having seen it. This one is particularly difficult because it skips in time from childhood to war efforts and post war events and back again; visual cues from the stage would make the transition easier than on the page.
This said, this 'time warping' is an effective ploy to recount not only Alan Turing's professional contributions (computing and cryptography) but also his personal difficulties. It gives a very tight account of the man in his research, his personality and the main events of his life. Despite the very technical nature of his work, it is explained in an easily accessible fashion, with a sense of wonder. Generally a precise look at a man's extraordinary contribution.
