Do you believe in luck? A man successfully bets double or nothing on the Super Bowl coin toss for twenty years in a row. A professor races the clock on a ground-breaking discovery to cure the disease that is causing her own progressive blindness. Two fascinating stories intertwine like DNA, examining the interplay between science, faith, probability and luck.
★★★ out of 4 “Andrea Donaldson directs a sleek production for Tarragon Theatre, featuring an indelible performance by Nancy Palk; If you like brainy plays that challenge you to keep up and give you lots to pick apart afterwards, grab some clever friends and get along to this one.” – Toronto Star
★★★★ “Lakra’s quick-witted script is often funny, especially in the hands of Palk as the no-nonsense professor; Sequence is a modern, intellectually-stimulating piece that sparks conversation.”- Theatromania
“The ideas and structure of the show are delightful, philosophically engaging, and inventive, and the production elements are apt and stylish.” – Mooney on Theatre
“Sequence is a smart, funny, fast-paced play on the nature of luck and love that will leave both your head and your heart spinning.” – Vern Thiessen, Governor General’s Literary Award-winning Author
