Caryl Churchill’s A Number is an original work published in 2002 in London in association with the Royal Court Theatre.[1] A Number was written when cloning was often in the news. Dolly the sheep, creation of human embryos at Advanced Cell Technology in the US, and the cloning of a kitten[2] gave rise to controversy concerning possible human cloning.
