Primary Stages presentation of In The Continuum moves to the Perry Street Theatre. The play will open on the 1 Dec 2005, following previews from the 18 Nov and running through to the 14 Jan 2006.

Written and performed by Danai Gurira and Nikkole Salter and directed by Robert O'Hara, In The Continuum the play 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.
