Thursday 6 — Saturday 15 April
Bernard has spent 35 years believing he’s an only child, one of a kind, until he learns the chilling truth. He’s one of ‘a number’ of clones resulting from a nefarious genetic experiment. When he confronts his father, Salter, questions of identity and morality result in an explosive exchange with dire consequences.
A Number showcases Caryl Churchill’s consummate skill in creating brilliantly compelling drama bristling with ideas, and is directed by another accomplished playwright, Zinnie Harris. This dynamic two-hander is the starting point for a powerful debate about the boundaries and ethics of science. To serve the intensity of this award-winning play, The Lyceum will transform the stage into an intimate 300-seater studio space in the round with a provocative piece of theatre at its heart.
