The Numbers Game is 6-Part Miniseries for the Stage – Theatre for the Netflix Generation. Set in Harlem’s dirty 30's after prohibition ended and organized crime had turned from booze to gambling, The Numbers Game dives into the race-fueled clash between Stephanie 'Queenie' St. Clair, and Dutch Schultz, two historic titans of illicit industry. As Queenie defends Harlem's booming penny lottery "numbers game" against Schultz's brutal invasion, New York City seethes with power hungry mobsters ready to knife or cheat their way to the top.
