Teresa Langston, director, brings New Britain Connecticut’s Backyard Theater Ensemble’s production of Caryl Churchill’s “A Number” to the Grange Hall Cultural Center, Waterbury, May 6-8, 2022. May 6 and 7, 7:30 p.m.; May 8, 2 p.m.


Directed by former Valley resident Teresa Langston, “A Number” is a riveting stage play written by the groundbreaking living American playwright Caryl Churchill. The story unfolds in unexpected ways revealing a father’s painful confrontations with his three identical sons. Cloning technology and the human spirit produce a clash of nature and nurture, bringing into question the morality of both parenthood and science. A stark, void space allows the spotlight to fall on the harsh reality of ethical parenting in this melancholic portrayal of a man’s love for his child.

Although “A Number” drives its audience to the edge of their seat, ultimately, it’s a thoughtful and touching human story about emotional well-being. It’s about wanting a second chance, deserved or otherwise. It’s about being yourself, even when it’s disturbing to realize that other very similar selves are out there.

Langston (formerly of Fayston) is a director and performer with a long list of credits across the theatrical spectrum and film, including the direction of “Red Flag,” a Sundance Film Festival contender. A consummate artist and insightful theater maker now residing in Connecticut, this powerful script under her direction delivers a compelling night at the theater. Her next directorial project will be Robert O'Hara's “Barbecue” in August (CT).
