Is your identity really yours? In the gripping new drama A Number, a man is confronted by three of his grown sons when they discover that they are replicates—human clones cut from identical genetic cloth with drastically differing results. As each son in turn seeks the truth behind his genesis, A Number tackles with chilling grace the unsettling question of individualism, the ongoing battle between "nature" and "nurture," and a brave new family's desperate attempt to negotiate this brave new era.

A Number features Josh Charles ("Sports Night," Four Brothers, Dead Poets Society) in the multiple roles of Bernard, and veteran Broadway and film actor Bill Smitrovich ("24," HBO's Mrs. Harris, "Life Goes On") portrays their father, Salter. Anna D. Shapiro, one of the few directors honored as an ensemble member of the groundbreaking Steppenwolf Theatre Company, directs.
