Lent Week 4
‘Salter’ messed-up with his first-born. He wanted a second-chance. But with the same child. A family tragedy meets futuristic fantasy, Caryl Churchill's 'A Number' confronts us with the potentially nightmarish consequences of a family experiencing the effects of reproductive cloning. Challenging us to reconsider what exactly ‘it’ is that individuates each one of us, and exploring how our senses of identity can be altered as we experience the effects of scientific advancement, ‘A Number’ is a poignant and timely play.
