No Strings Theatre Company presents a funny, tender new play by John W. Lowell, The Standby Lear, at the Black Box Theatre, May 6 – 22, 2022. The actor playing King Lear has fallen ill. Augie, the understudy, is handed the opportunity to play one of the greatest roles ever written for the stage. Now that the last great opportunity in Augie’s long acting career has arrived, is he up to the task, or is it too late?

Performances are Fridays, May 6, 13, & 20 at 8 p.m.; Saturdays, May 7, 14, & 21, at 8 p.m.; Sundays, May 15, & 22, at 2:30 p.m.; Thursday, May 19, at 7 p.m. Tickets are $15, adults; $12, students and seniors over 65; $10 Thursday Bargain Night. All patrons must wear masks at all times and must be vaccinated. For more information, visit the website, or call 575-523-1223.
