About this show

A father confronted by his adult son must explain that not only did he have his son cloned, but that there are "a number" of genetically-identical brothers. Caryl Churchill's brilliantly conceived A Number is a stark and unsettling journey into the nature versus nurture debate, navigated through the murky waters of the ethics of cloning. Does genetics or environment play a larger role in shaping who we are?
