“…stunning new play…ferociously inventive…gripping dramatic consideration of what happens to autonomous identity in a world where people can be cloned.” — The New York Times
“The writer takes a patented bit of paranoid fantasy from the world of science fiction–the diabolical misuse of genetifc engineering–and reconstitutes it as a potent family tragedy.” — The Washington Post
“What a tremendous play this is, moving, thought-provoking and dramatically thrilling.” — The Daily Telegraph
Ms. Churchill is the award-winning playwright whose plays include: Cloud Nine, Vinegar Tom, Top Girls, Fen, Icecream, Mad Forest, The Skriker, Far Away, and many others. By special arrangement with Samuel Frecnh, Inc.
