Human cloning is under the microscope in this revival of Caryl Churchill’s 2002 play. Dolly the Sheep prompted a public debate about cloning in the early noughties and now that the world’s first genetically altered baby have been born (China 2018) this subject is more relevant than ever. The brilliant Roger Allam leads the cast in a production that’s had four star reviews pretty much across the board from the papers.
What happens when a father is confronted by the results of an outrageous genetic experiment? In Caryl Churchill’s thrilling drama, which won the 2002 Evening Standard Award for Best Play, Roger Allam plays Salter, the father. Colin Morgan plays all his sons. Polly Findlay directs.
