Northwestern University's Robert R. McCormick School of Engineering and Applied Science
is proud to present an ETOPiA production
A play by Caryl Churchill | Directed by John Gawlik
Written in 2002 – six years after the highly publicized creation of “Dolly,” the cloned sheep – A Number explores the conflicts that arise between a father and his adult son, who learns that his father may have allowed his son to be cloned when he was a child. The play delves into the personal consequences of human cloning and how the power of replicating genetic identity may have unintended consequences.
Each performance includes a post-show discussion led by Northwestern students and featuring a panel of Northwestern University faculty members and graduate students. Post performance panel discussion will inform the audience about the science behind the play, concluding with a Q & A with university faculty, students, and the professional actors.
