A stem-cell-researcher, while seeking a cure for her impending blindness, confronts a student who has defied probability with zero correct answers on a midterm exam. The “Luckiest Man Alive” wins successive Super Bowl bets without fail for 20 years, only to be called out by a woman who says she’s deciphered his secret formula.
Writer and ophthalmologist Arun Lakra intertwines these two stories in his play Sequence.
In the reading of this award-winning play, directed by Canadian theatre and film artist David McIlwraith, questions of science, faith, coincidence and probability frothily unfold, to both entertain and tantalize.
