The Blackhorse Village Players Theatre is pleased to present Sequence, a play written by Canadian playwright Arun Lakra.
What is luck? Are eight consecutive tails always just a coincidence? And what are the chances of two people having a dog named Cynthia?
Sequence is a mind-blowing, award-winning, edge-of-your-seat science thriller where two stories intertwine like a fragment of DNA. In one thread, Time Magazine’s Luckiest Man Alive has bet on the Super Bowl coin toss 19 years in a row. And won every time. Today he is about to risk $880 million on the 20th, until he luckily meets a young woman who claims to have figured out his mathematical secret. Simultaneously (or so it seems), a blind professor is paid a mysterious late night visit by a student in a wheelchair who, on his Genetics final examination, somehow got all 150 questions wrong … a 1 in 5 quintillion chance.
In this theatrical petri dish, stem cell research, God, miniskirts, Fibonacci numbers and football all spiral together in an intellectually sexy cocktail. Sequence inspires, delights and surprises with its playful language, and interplay of logic and metaphysics. Belief systems clash, ideas recombine, mutate and evolve, and order springs from chaos. And the question is asked: In our lives, in our universe and even in our stories, does order matter?
