A NumberCaryl Churchill's haunting drama, A Number, returns to the London stage in 2020 with a run at Bridge Theatre starring Roger Allam and Colin Morgan. An exploration of identity, intimacy and belonging, it sees an only son discover that he is, in fact, one of a number of identical copies. What will happen when he confronts his father about his outrageous genetic experiment? The thrilling piece won the 2002 Evening Standard Award for Best Play and has since been staged at the likes of The Young Vic theatre. Polly Findlay directs this production with Allam taking the role of Salter, the father, and Morgan playing all his sons.

About Bridge Theatre

What Nicholas Hytner did next: after 12 years as director of the National Theatre, the theatre chief is building a theatre from the ground up. Designed by Steve Tompkins and Roger Watts of Haworth Tompkins, winner of the 2014 Stirling Prize for architecture for the Everyman Theatre in Liverpool, the Bridge Theatre brings theatre into the 21st century, offering theatre-makers a platform to create adventurous new work, and giving audiences a modern 900-seat adaptable theatre - capable of staging traditional, in-the-round and promenade performances.
