“A number” by CARYL CHURCHILL (A "That theatre" production)

Caryl Churchill’s magnificent play only lasts an hour but contains more drama, and more ideas, than most writers manage in a dozen full-length works.

Part psychological thriller, part topical scientific speculation, and part analysis of the relationship between fathers and their sons, it combines elegant structural simplicity with an astonishing intellectual and emotional depth. This is a tremendous play; moving, thought provoking and dramatically thrilling.

SCRIPT          Caryl Churchill
DIRECTOR     Helen Parry
CAST             Ian Burns & Rasmus Emil Mortensen
