No Strings Theatre Company presents the Southwest
Premiere of "Mad Gravity" a kooky new comedy by William Missouri
Downs, the author of "Cockeyed," previously produced by No Strings
Theatre Company. The plot centers around two Dada performance artists who
have built a theatre in their living room and who are hosting a dinner party.
Things go quickly awry when they discover an asteroid is headed their way
which threatens to demolish the earth. They and the audience are forced to
answer existential questions: Can humans be good if no one is watching? What
is the meaning of life? What is performance art?
Veteran actors Marissa Bond, Rafael Medina, Emily Parr, Donny Prosise, and Britney Stout bring the delightful comedy to
life. Peter Herman is Lighting and Scenic Designer, Jeanne Luper designed the costumes, Debra Knapp is the
Choreographer and Algernon D'Ammassa is the Fight
Choreographer. The Crew includes Karen Ross (Stage Manager), Rebekkah Riley (Light and Sound Board Operator), and
Carmen Call (Backstage Crew.) Tommy Medina is the drummer.
"Mad Gravity" opens on Friday, May 1 and runs through Sunday, May 17.
Performances are Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00 p.m., Sunday Matinees on May
10 and 17 at :30 p.m. and a Thursday evening performance on May 14 at 7:00
p.m. Tickets are $12.00 regular admission, $10.00 students and seniors over
65 and all seats on Thursday are $8.00. Reservations: (575) 523-1223.
