Hudson Stage Company to Present A KIND OF ALASKA & A NUMBER in Rep, 5/1-17
Hudson Stage Company announces its spring mainstage production, a first in theatrical history. Two British plays will be paired: A KIND OF ALASKA by Harold Pinter with A NUMBER by Caryl Churchill. With special permission granted by the late Sir Harold Pinter?s widow, Lady Antonia Fraser, as a rare exception because he greatly admired Ms. Churchill?s work, this will be an opportunity for audiences to witness two of England?s greatest playwrights in tandem. This not-to-be-missed event will run for three weekends only May 2nd-17th.
In A KIND OF ALASKA, inspired by an Oliver Sacks? story, a middle-aged woman wakes up after nearly thirty years have passed in a coma induced by sleeping sickness.
A NUMBER was the winner of the Evening Standard Award for Best Play. Human cloning is the subject of this beguiling psychological thriller that blends scientific speculation with a stunning portrait of the relationship between fathers and sons.
