New York Theatre Workshop has announced that Ato Blankson-Wood (Slave Play) will complete the cast of the company's one-night-only reading of Caryl Churchill's A Number, joining the previously announced Daniel Craig in the performance directed by Tony Award winner Sam Gold (Fun Home).
A Number explores the subject of human cloning and follows the conflict between a father and his three sons, two of whom are clones of the first one. Craig originated the roles of the sons in the Royal Court Theatre's 2002 world premiere of the drama. In this performance, Craig will play Salter, while Blankson-Wood will take on the roles of Bernard 1, Bernard 2, and Michael.
The reading will benefit NYTW's Artist Workshop and Education programming.
