why watch a number

Written by Caryl Churchill, one of the most renowned British playwrights in history, A Number is a story about families and what it takes to start over. The play stars Paapa Essiedu and Lennis James in titular roles. Essiedu is well known for his work in television, film, and stage, and is an Emmy Award nominee and an Ian Charleson award winner. James is best known for his work in television shows such as Jericho, Buried, The Walking Dead, and more.

The heart-wrenching play follows the story of a family set in the near future. The father, Salter, creates two clones of his first son. The play revolves around the subject of identity and human cloning. Lennie James and Paapa Essiedu play father and son in this riveting drama.

Don't miss this masterpiece of a play as it makes its way to London's Old Vic Theater for a limited run this winter.
