'A Play, a Pint and a Pie" is not your father's dinner theater. The Tiny Dynamite company's version offers: a drink, a slice of pizza, and a professional production of an hour-long play, with a new show each week. This week's is A Number by major British playwright Caryl Churchill, and it is not to be missed. A Number is about human cloning.
