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.

Director – Mark Robbins
