Every parent makes mistakes.
Salter makes a number of them.
Now 35 years later, his only child realises he’s not alone.
The play follows conflict between a father (Lennie James) and his sons; Paapa Essiedu plays all 3.
Caryl Churchill’s gripping drama about what it costs to start again unpacks reason and ethics surrounding human cloning as two of the sons are clones of the first one.
