Description

How might a man feel to discover that he is only one in a number of identical copies? And which one of him is the original? A Number explores the subject of human cloning and identity. Set in the near future, we witness the conflict between a father and his three sons -- two of whom are clones of the first one. Through the eternal debate on nature versus nurture, award winning playwright Caryl Churchill explores what makes us who we are, in a gripping and explosive drama which will feature real life father and son George and Niall Costigan. George Costigan (Rita, Sue and Bob Too, Calendar Girls) returns to York Theatre Royal's Studio after his stunning performance in David Harrower's Blackbird and we welcome back Niall Costigan who recently played King Arthur in our family summer show.
