at The Building Stage

A man questions his father about the possible existence of another estranged son, and the questions opens up a series of events that neither men could ever have expected.  Penned by one of the world’s most uncompromising playwrights,  Caryl Churchill’s A Number is a beguiling hour-long psychological thriller that blends topical scientific speculation with a stunning portrait of the relationship between fathers and their sons.
