Limited Season At The Old Vic Until 19th March 2022

From: £ 20.00 Book Now

Lennie James and Paapa Essiedu take on the roles of father and son in A Number, Caryl Churchill’s gripping drama about the true cost of starting again which will showcase at the Old Vic from 24th January until 19 March 2022.

All parents makes mistakes.

Salter is no different and makes a number of them.

Now after 35 years, his only child comes to the realisation that he’s not alone.

It’s been two decades since Caryl Churchill’s elliptical, spry cloning play first showcased at the Royal Court starring Michael Gambon and Daniel Craig.  The play remains a fascinating chamber piece for a pair of talented pair actors to ply their trade – as we can once again see here with Lennie James and Paapa Essiedu in this much anticipated anniversary revival.

James takes on the role of Salter, who, following the tragic death of his young son, had him cloned in an attempt to have another chance at parenting him. The doctor responsible for the cloning however, created multiple unauthorised versions of the son – the “numbers” of the title – and now Salter is confronted by several of them, and also by the choices he has made.
