A Number (2006)
If you were dissatisfied with your child, would you if you could start over with the same raw material, hoping for a better result? What if you discovered that though you felt like an individual person, you were in fact only one of a number of identicals? From the subtle and innovative mind of Caryl Churchill (Top Girls. Cloud Nine) comes an emotionally compelling, intellectually provocative meditation on the implications of cloning at the most human, most personal level. Through a series of deftly written confrontations between a father and his sons, Churchill invites us to consider the disturbing complexity of a reality not too far in our future. A Number welcomes this major writer of the modern era back to ACT’s stage for the first time in twenty (?) years. Winner, 2002 London Evening Standard Award for Best Play.
