A NumberReal-life father and son John and Lex Shrapnel star in Caryl Churchill's haunting meditation on identity, intimacy and belonging as seen through the eyes of a 35-year-old only child who discovers he is a clone. Pushing the boundaries of science and ethics, A Number - "brilliantly staged, punchy and discomforting" (The Guardian) - is performed in The Maria, the smaller studio at the Young Vic, and directed by Michael Longhurst.

About The Young Vic

Knocked together out of breeze blocks for a minimal budget in 1970, Lawrence Olivier's experimental theatre was intended to last for five years, and provide an inspiration for the new generation of performers. But this was an experiment that worked and, years later, the Young Vic remains south London's premier venue for the contemporary, the shocking, the controversial, and the bizarre.
