'In The Continuum' extends to the 18 Feb 2006
Primary Stages in association with the Perry Street Theatre has announced a second and final extension of the new play In The Continuum, written and performed by Danai Gurira and Nikkole Salter with direction by Robert O'Hara
In The Continuum originally opened at 59E59's Theater A on the 2 Oct 2005, following previews from the 11 Sep and played through to the 30 Oct 2005, before opening at the Perry Street Theatre on the 1 Dec 2005, following previews from the 18 Nov.
In The Continuum dramatizes the devastating problem of HIV/AIDS among African and African-American women that has reached an all time high both in the US and Africa.
The co-creators of this play (one African and one African-American) felt the need to have a story told from a woman's perspective. The two actresses portray numerous characters in two parallel stories that transform women with HIV/AIDS from statistical victims on news reports to empathetic people who demand compassion and attention.
In The Continuum explores the personal journeys of a married Zimbabwean woman and a 19-year-old girl from South Central Los Angeles, whose hopes and aspirations are forever altered when faced with the realities of HIV/AIDS.
