“I have noticed that even people who claim everything is predetermined
and that we can do nothing to change it, look before they cross the road.”
~ Stephen Hawking
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 exams 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 coin toss for 20 years running – is confronted by a young woman who claims to know his secret.
In SEQUENCE, two different paths converge. Belief systems clash, ideas mutate, and order springs from chaos!
Directed by Rena Cohen and featuring performances by Amy Amantea (Comedy on Wheels),
Jake Anthony (Just Watch Me: A Trudeau Rock Musical), Byron Noble (The Foreigner) and
Krista Skwarok (Peggy Sawyer in 42nd Street). This production of SEQUENCE will be the first-ever to be performed by an integrated cast, giving audiences a rare glimpse into the lived experience of disability.
