Theater Against AIDS “In the Continuum” is a timely dramatization of the problem of AIDS among African and African-American women. Living worlds apart in South Central, Los Angeles and Harare, Zimbabwe, two young women experience a kaleidoscope weekend of darkly comic, life-changing revelations. With the two playwright/actors playing dozens of roles, the play takes the audience on a journey of parallel denials and self-discoveries. The show is currently in previews and will open officially on World AIDS day, Thursday, December 1. Performances will continue through Saturday, January 14. Show times are Monday through Saturday evenings at 8:00pm and Saturday afternoons at 3:00pm. Until December 3, tickets are $45, afterwards tickets are $60 and may be purchased by calling 212-868-4444 or visiting www.SmartTix.com. Performances will take place at The Perry Street Theater, 31 Perry Street, just west of 7th Avenue. A portion of the proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to a charity involved in the fight against AIDS.
