The alienation half of the night is covered with Caryl Churchill's A Number, a one-act play making its Houston premiere. In A Number, a man has three sons - his wife gave birth to one, another was created in a lab and a third is a clone of the clone (the man doesn't even know about this one). Churchill's play examines the age-old dynamics of father-son relationships and the newer issue of human cloning. 7:30 p.m. Thursday, 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, 3 p.m. Sunday. 2540 Times Boulevard. For information, call 713-524-6706 or visit www.mainstreettheater.com. $10 to $36.
