PROJECT SYNOPSIS

Is our luck programmed in our genes? Is there an innate right-ness to biological outcomes that’s rooted in our fundamental DNA? Sequence is a science thriller that explores the intersection of math, nature, and spirituality.

A professor confronts a student who has defied probability by taking a multiple choice exam only to get every answer – 150 of them – wrong (chances of achieving this result is one in a pentillion). Meanwhile, the “Luckiest Man Alive” – his status cemented by his uncanny ability to predict the winner of the Super Bowl for 20 years running – is confronted by a young woman who claims to know his secret.

Additional Comments:

Dialogue is razor sharp. The play is fast-paced, urgent, and cerebral.

Seeking actors with disabilities for two of the roles (see character descriptions).
