About Continuity:

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?”

Our Continuity Review

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.
