With her finger as always on the pulse of our deepest concerns, in "A Number", Caryl Churchill turns her extraordinary dramatic gifts to the subject of human cloning - how might a son feel to discover that he is only one of a number of identical copies. And how would the father feel confronted by these reproachful clones ...? First staged in 2002 to huge acclaim at the Royal Court Theatre, London, with Michael Gambon as the father and Daniel Craig as the sons, "A Number" is revived at Sheffield in October 2006 with real-life father and son, Timothy and Samuel West, playing the leads.

Review:

'A Number confirms Churchill's status as the first dramatist of the 21st century. On the face of it, it is about human cloning... Like all Churchill's best plays, A Number deals with both the essentials and the extremities of human experience... The questions this brilliant, harrowing play asks are almost unanswerable, which is why they must be asked' Sunday Times 'Caryl Churchill's magnificent new play only lasts an hour but contains more drama , and more ideas, than most writers manage in a dozen full-length works' Daily Telegraph 'Caryl Churchill never stands still. After the dystopian nightmare of Far Away, she now comes up with a challenging new form of moral inquiry. And the key question she ask in this play is from what the essential core of self derives: from nature or nurture, genetic inheritance or environmental circumstance?' --Guardian
