"How far has this thing gone, how many of these things are there?"

What defines us? Nature? Nurture? What is it that makes us us?

From the innovative mind of Caryl Churchill comes A Number, an emotional shockwave of a play that examines both the complicated bonds of the father/son relationship and the implications of cloning at the most human and personal level.

A much-loved son discovers that he is merely one of "a number" of genetically identical counterparts and confronts his father with the knowledge - and the desire to know if he is the original. From this confrontation stems a profound examination not only of the impact of science on our morality but on the very nature and substance of love.

"What a tremendous play this is, moving, thought-provoking, and dramatically thrilling." ~The Telegraph
