Bernard has made a shocking discovery: he is one of “a number” of clones that were created from the cells of an older brother he never knew he had. Caryl Churchill’s A NUMBER opens as Bernard seeks an explanation from his widowed father, Salter. But, in succeeding scenes so do two other “sons.” Who is the original? Who are the clones? Why did the father have the clones made? A NUMBER is a fast-paced psychological thriller, a fascinating puzzle and a dark tale of a father’s love for his son, from one of the great playwrights of our time.

by Edward Albee
Directed by Doug Weaver
September 9 – 27, 2015
City Stage at Union Station

Featuring Brian Paulette, Jessalyn KincaidForrest Attaway

In this meticulous and nuanced look at the lives of three New Yorkers, an everyday conversation between a husband and wife takes an unexpected turn into dangerously personal territory. The revelations and confrontations catapult them from their delicately balanced world onto life-changing paths. With the intensity and honesty for which Albee is known, At Home at the Zoo reveals the cutting truth about the razor’s edge of our humanity.

Classically trained actors. Classic plays.

The Actors Theatre brings professional drama to Kansas City, in a vibrant presentation for the virtual age. The Theatre, formed by a veteran collective of artists, reimagines modern classics in settings across the city. A war story at the National WWI Museum … a meditation on death at the Muehlebach Funeral Home. Each production is an experience, bringing the actors and their words into focus. And because The Actors Theatre is mobile, without the overhead of a performance space, nearly all income goes to pay the best local actors, designers and technicians, so that the art of theatre can flourish in Kansas City.
