Play tackles the real-life issues of AIDS at home and abroad.

In the Continuum uses dark humor to tackle the realities of the AIDS epidemic among African and African American women. The play follows the lives of two separate women — a mother in Zimbabwe and a 19-year-old in Los Angeles, both diagnosed with HIV. Written by Danai Gurira, a native of Zimbabwe, and Nikkole Salter, from Los Angeles, the play began as a grad-school acting project at NYU, but since its 2005 debut, has been a critical and commercial success. It's being presented at the Cleveland Playhouse as part of FusionFest 2008. Two actors will play several different roles each, challenging societal assumptions about AIDS and those it affects. Performances are tonight and Wednesday evening, April 30, at 7:30 in the Brooks Theatre, 8500 Euclid Avenue. Tickets are $15.00. Call 216-795-7000 or visit www.clevelandplayhouse.com.
April 29-30, 7:30 p.m., 2008
