Before Simon came out, his mother Ora was his best friend and biggest supporter, but now there’s an ocean between them of what can’t be said, especially around his father. After a life-changing secret comes to light, will the family’s bond survive? Critically-acclaimed playwright Harrison David Rivers (This Bitter Earth and Interlude) returns to NCTC with we are continuous, a semi-autobiographical story that explores how people can change and how love can evolve.
