Auditions date – Sunday, August 29
3-5pm – A NUMBER

Directed by Louisa Vilardi

Synopsis: A Number by Caryl Churchill is a play, set in the near future, about the conflict between a father and his sons. This play explores the subject of human cloning and identity. Written as a two-hander, A Number examines free will, the dangers of artificial creation, and the question of nature versus nurture.

Seeking male actors for the following two roles:

 

Salter: a man in his early sixties who was married and had one son. His wife committed suicide by throwing herself under a train when their son was only two. He would raise their son alone, but due to his drinking and the son’s issues, he would neglect him and eventually send him away. He would then clone his son (Bernard 2) in an attempt to try again to be a better father. A pathological liar, he attempts to hide the truth of what he’s done from his sons.

Bernard*:

Bernard (B1)*: His son, forty. First and original son of Salter. He was a difficult and disturbed child, who Salter sent away when he was 4. He would grow to have an explosive temper and hate Salter for what he did to him.

Bernard (B2)*: His son, thirty-five, intended clone of his first son, made to replace his original son, Bernard 1. He is very mild-mannered and emotional.

Michael Black*: His son, thirty-five. An unauthorized clone of Salter’s first son. He is married with three children, the oldest aged twelve, and is a mathematics teacher.

*all played by the same actor.

Preparation: 

You may read from the script (hard copies will be provided), but please become familiar with the sides below.
