presented by Actors Collective in partnership with MOSH
and sponsored by STAGE Fund
Actors Collective presents three plays, performed reader’s theatre style, to compliment and expand on the themes presented in Genome: Unlocking Life’s Code, MOSH’s traveling exhibition that examines the complexities of the genome — the complete set of genetic or hereditary material of a living organism — and chronicles the remarkable breakthroughs that have taken place since the completion of the Human Genome Project more than a decade ago.

Set in a world in which human cloning is a reality, A Number explores the ethics of cloning, the fragility of personal identity and the conflicting claims of nature and nurture. A beguiling psychological thriller that blends scientific speculation with a stunning portrait of the relationship between fathers and sons.
“Rarely in my theatre going experience has a new play conveyed such a disturbing or enthralling impression of domestic weirdness … An astonishing event.” — Evening Standard
