Realwheels is thrilled to produce SEQUENCE by Arun Lakra as part of Presentation House Theatre‘s 2017-18 season. SEQUENCE is an extraordinary piece of Canadian playwriting that explores questions of determinism vs. free will via two stories that interweave like a strand of DNA.
“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 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!
