A NUMBER by Caryl Churchill and A KIND OF ALASKA by Harold Pinter Hudson Stage Company announces its spring mainstage production, a first in theatrical history.
Two British plays will be paired: A KIND OF ALASKA by Harold Pinter with ANUMBER by Caryl Churchill. With special permission granted by the late Sir Harold Pinterʼs widow, Lady Antonia Fraser, as a rare exception because he greatly admired Ms. Churchillʼs work, this will be an opportunity for audiences to witness two of Englandʼs greatest playwrights in tandem. This not-to-be-missed event will run for three weekends only May 2nd-17th.
In A KIND OF ALASKA, inspired by an Oliver Sacksʼ story, a middle-aged woman wakes up after nearly thirty years have passed in a coma induced by sleeping sickness. ” …A masterpiece. Moves one in a way no work of his has ever done before. ” The Guardian. “Profoundly eloquent about the fragile joy of being alive” The Daily Telegraph. A NUMBER was the winner of the Evening Standard Award for Best Play. Human cloning is the subject of this beguiling psychological thriller that blends scientific speculation with a stunning portrait of the relationship between fathers and sons. “Rarely in my theatre-going experience has a new play conveyed such a disturbing or enthralling impression of domestic weirdness. ..An astonishing event”. Evening Standard “Magnificent…what a tremendous play this is, moving, thought-provoking and dramatically thrilling” Daily Telegraph
