by Arun Lakra
directed by Andrea Donaldson
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 and faith, probability and luck. An ophthalmologist by day, Arun Lakra is also a playwright, screenwriter and songwriter. Sequence – his first and only play to date – received the 2013 Betty Mitchell Award for Outstanding New Play when it was debuted by the theatre company Downstage and a Calgary Theatre Critics’ Award for Best New Script.
“Lakra’s writing style is a little bit Aaron (West Wing) Sorkin (if he was a science geek instead of politics geek), a little bit David Mamet (if he was a little less macho and more funny) and a whole lot of Tom Stoppard (if Tom Stoppard was a Calgarian, instead of British) all of it coming at you like a cavalcade of playwriting’s greatest hits over the past three decades.” ¬ – Calgary Herald
