Sequence

If you love Fibonacci numbers (as I do), you will love this play. And even if you don’t know what a Fibonacci number is, you will love it.

Four characters, two stories, intertwined. Which came first, the chicken or the egg? The answer to this question and many others are tossed around in this fast paced comedy. It is hard to believe that Arun Lakra is an ophthalmologist and not a full time playwright. The play is well structured and well balanced. Questions asked in one story are answered in the next, without a pause. The mystery builds almost unnoticed, until the answer is revealed.

The cast was uniformly great. Kevin Bundy, Jesse Lavercombe, Ava Jane Markus and Nancy Palk all deserve a  larger audience than showed up on Tuesday a tTarragon.

    We see many plays, often by established playwrights, that seem not ready for primetime – as if they are still being workshopped. So, it was a (very pleasant) surprised to see a play by what seems like a first-time playwright that seemed complete and polished. Lots of amusing lines and an interesting ideas and an ending which leaves you to decide the sequence of events. (I know which sequence is correct. Cathy might not agree with me; but then she’d be wrong. She’s right about the excellent cast, though.)
