THAT IS ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW

Theatre |
25th September 2014

This stunning piece of visual theatre tells the story of Bletchley Park and the untold secrets of the remarkable men and women who cracked the enigma code.

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. 

With their trademark inventive staging and captivating storytelling, Idle Motion create a textured landscape of personal testimony and multimedia 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
