Unequalibrium recounts five hysterical lives bound for collision during one of New York City’s nastiest snow storms.
Like the tempest that links them, the monologues escalate toward a unifying climax that is at once hilarious and horrifying. A straight-laced science teacher, shaken by an impending sabbatical, a plumber with a fail-safe Black-Jack system, a laid-off web-designer with a confrontational fiancé, and a criminally minded defense attorney stumbling into a botched murder/robbery.
Off-balance in their own way, the lives exposed in unequalibrium come full circle in a single chance event. At the storm’s height, the scientist witnesses the crisis that pierces each character’s veil and instantly connects these four lives, forever. Teetering on the brink of insanity, life itself is grasped the only way it should ever be: tightly and with both hands.
