The audio recording of the live performance from the Royal Court was made by the British Library and is part of a unique collection of drama accessible to the public at the Library, but for reference only. You can’t borrow a recording. All sound recordings which are less than 50 years old are in copyright, so it is not possible to obtain a copy. Any attempt at illegal copying of a recording would be viewed very seriously. When I find time, I will arrange a visit to the BL to listen to the play.

Thanks, SG. I've seen some reviews of the play but not this one in Variety. I really will try to fit in a visit to the BL.

I guess this is not much use to anyone, but I've now discovered that the Victoria & Albert Museum in London has 'The National Video Archive of Performance' and included in this collection is a video-recording of 'A Number'. It was recorded at the Royal Court Theatre on October 12, 2002 (matinee performance). I will check this out.

I think there was a rare screening of it at the V&A last June. It's a pity I didn't find out about it at the time.

I saw this play ( with other actors playing the parts of DC and the father). It was only 90mins long but was awe inspiring!!! I left thinking about the characters and the whole issue. it makes me think how much better it would have been with Michael Gambon and Daniel Craig in the roles!!!

I would give my right arm to see it with them in it.

Its the one black hole in our completed catalogue of DC work. Its a damn shame, that plays - even Boradway plays not get filmed to be sold later on DVD. I dunno, what is the politic behind that.

I just stumbled upon this, a film version. Not with DC but with Rhys Ifans and Tom Wilkenson.

I would have watched this, because I like both actors

I saw it when it first aired on UK TV.

How long ago was it on in the UK SG? I too would have loved to see it. Seeing Daniel in a play is still on my 'to do' list...

Wow! These pics are new to me! What a treat. I don't recall the ones SG posted in 2013 at all. Yeah, what a shame we can't see them on DVD. But I guess if you're in the biz, you can watch the one performance recorded on Broadway and stored at the Lincoln Library. I wonder if off-Broadway plays are recorded and stored?
