The world is ending. The writer is dying. The Styrofoam rock is repeatedly broken. Daylight is fading, and the movie's last shot is not complete. There is nothing anyone can do about any of it.
Manhattan Theatre Club continues its 2018-2019 off-Broadway season with the world premiere of Continuity, written by Lucille Lortel and Drama Desk Award nominee Bess Wohl and directed by Tony Award nominee Rachel Chavkin.
Performances are staged at The Studio at Stage II inside New York City Center.

A sheet of ice sits in the desert of New Mexico. A mad eco-terrorist plants a bomb in order to save humankind. A beleaguered film crew tries to get in one last shot before losing the light. Continuity is a sly, biting comedy in six takes where storytelling and science collide with both hilarious and devastating consequences. The play asks, "How do we keep going when hope can seem as fictional as a Hollywood ending?" "How do we tell the stories that could shape our future?" and, perhaps most importantly, “What's for lunch?”
