A NUMBER Opens Rec Room Arts 2023 Season Of Plays In Downtown Houston

Rec Room Arts has announced the opening of A NUMBER by Caryl Churchill. Preview performances begin on February 2, 2023 with an official press opening night on Saturday, February 4, 2023. The production is directed by James Black (Alley Theatre) and will feature performances by Shawn Hamilton (The Royale, Alley Theatre) and Philip Kershaw (Rec Room Writer). The production is the first in the 2023 season.

A NUMBER is a psychological thriller that blends scientific speculation with a stunning portrait of the relationship between fathers and sons. Every parent makes mistakes. Salter makes a number of them. Now 35 years later, his only child realizes he's not alone. Caryl Churchill's play is a powerful, unpredictable and devastating drama about what it costs to start over.

A NUMBER will feature production design by Stefan Azizi and sound design by Robert Leslie Meek. Emma Bacon and Jessica Casanova are the production stage managers.

Review: CLYDES At Ensemble Theatre Is a Masterclass Production Photo
Do you ever feel anxious at work? Tired? Maybe you are stressed because your home life is chaotic. Now add the pressure that you are formerly incarcerated, and your boss (who was also in prison) consistently uses this fact against you. On top of which, your work is making sandwiches at a busy truck stop with never-ending pressure and a toxic work environment. This scenario from acclaimed playwright Lynn Nottage is Clydes, currently in production at Houston's The Ensemble Theatre.
