Obie Award winner James Saito (Durango, TV's "Eli Stone") and Joel de la Fuente (Cowboy v. Samurai) play father and son(s), respectively.
Christoph Hahner is co-producer. Maureen Payne-Hahner directs. The Obie Award-winning National Asian American Theatre Company (NAATCO) is now in its 21st season.
According to NAATCO, "In A Number, Caryl Churchill explores the human experience, the essence of personality, and nature versus nurture as a man confronts his father after discovering that he has several siblings — each one of his clones."
The design team for A Number includes Czerton Lim (set design); Maureen Payne-Hahner (costume design); Alex Bright (lighting design); and Kate Brown (sound design).
Churchill's plays include Top Girls, Mad Forest, Fen, Cloud Nine and Serious Money.
Performances will play Tuesdays-Saturdays at 7:30 PM, Saturdays at 3 PM and Sundays at 2 PM at the Cherry Lane Studio Theatre (38 Commerce Street).
Tickets are priced $25; visit Telecharge.com or call (212) 239-6200 or (800) 432-7250. Tickets may also be purchased at the Cherry Lane box office.
NAATCO was created to provide opportunities for Asian-American theatre artists — actors, directors, designers and more — to do work in Western stage literature that they might not ordinarily be cast in or hired for in traditional circumstances. For more information, visit www.naatco.org.
