Serendipity is part of Niagara Falls and Other Plays, a collection of heightened short plays that explore what happens when everyday life rubs up against the messy and fantastic mysteries of the universe.
A man and a woman meet by chance on a street corner. The woman wants to go home; the man wants to know why the woman’s fiancée looks just like him. Sometimes serendipitous meetings can be hard to shake off…
