A Number by Caryl Churchill
Thursday, April 3, 2008
Directed by Elisa Valentine, Churchill’s provocative play examines the implications of human cloning, poignantly juxtaposing a father’s attempt to redeem himself through modern science against a son’s painful discovery that he is a clone, an exact replica, just one in a number. Talkback immediately following performance. Made possible by the Markkula Center for Applied Ethics, Ignatian Center’s Bannan Institute, Gerald and Sally DeNardo, the Center of Performing Arts, the College of Arts and Sciences, and the Center for Science, Technology, and Society.
