You’ve made a really bad mistake in life. Is it possible to start over? What if you hurt others in the process? And what happens when your actions finally catch up with you?
Salter may be sorry for decisions he has made in his past, but is his remorse enough?
It is Salter’s son, Bernard, who must face the consequences of his father’s devastating decisions when he discovers that he is one of “a number” of Bernards whom his father has had cloned.
Caryl Churchill’s powerfully disturbing drama, winner of the Evening Standard Award for Best Play, considers the damage parents can do to children, explores the question of nature versus nurture and asks whether any of us can truly escape our past.
