About the Premiere Production:
Synopsis: 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?”
This world premiere is by Bess Wohl (Small Mouth Sounds), and helmed by the Tony-nominated director Rachel Chavkin (Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812).
