The Sequence
World Premiere by Paul Mullin
Directed by John Langs
October 11 - November 09, 2008

In the fierce competition to sequence the human genome, will the grand prize be the public good or the private profit?  And in the midst of the frenzied race to determine what makes a human being, how will three people-- each in hot pursuit of scientific discovery and enduring fame-- discover their own humanity?  This unpredictably hilarious true story depicts the double-talk and double-cross in the pursuit of double-stranded DNA.
