A Number - 2022 - West End History , Info & More

Old Vic Theatre
The Cut, South Bank London

It’s 20 years since Caryl Churchill’s spry, elliptical cloning play premiered at the Royal Court with Michael Gambon and Daniel Craig, and it remains a fascinating chamber piece for a talented pair of actors – as we see here with the great Lennie James and Paapa Essiedu in this anniversary revival.



James plays Salter, who, following the death of his young son, had him cloned in order to have a second chance at parenting him. But the doctor actually created multiple unauthorised versions – the “numbers” of the title – and Salter is now confronted by several of them, and by the choices he made.
