Aurora Theatre Company presents the modern classic A NUMBER by influential British playwright Caryl Churchill with Barbara Damashek directing. Set in the near future, the play explores human cloning, personal identity and the age-old debate of nature versus nurture
A NUMBER plays March 9 through May 6, opening March 15, in Aurora's second stage performance space, Harry's UpStage.
Always inventive, Churchill wrote A NUMBER during a time period of interest debate about the ethics of human cloning. The play delves into he issue through the relationship between an aging father and his three adult sons; the second and third a clone of the first. When son Bernard discovers he's not the only Bernard, a series of questions ensue that will take him and his father on a compelling psychological journey.
