What better way to kick off a new PRC2 season than with an incisive “play that you will want to discuss and debate long after you have left the theatre” (Theatreworld)?
The sharp and always surprising Caryl Churchill takes the age-old scenario of confrontation between a father and son and turns it inside out to explore issues of human identity and parental responsibility, tackling the nature versus nurture debate head-on. In this family the sons are actually clones of the father’s “original” son. Variables mount, guilt surfaces, lies are exposed and consequences cannot be denied as the startling facts are revealed.
