SANTA FE, N.M. — This is your last week to catch the New Mexico Actors Lab production of Harold Pinter’s mysterious, haunting, yet profound dramedy, “No Man’s Land.”
In the play, which premiered in 1974, an older, successful writer named Hirst invites over a man — a failed poet — who he meets at a pub. Running interference throughout the visit are Hirst’s two, younger servants. Pinter’s creation, as NMAL describes it, transports the audience into somewhat of a No Man’s Land — “into a world somewhere between reality and dream.”
The Santa Fe production is directed by Nicolas Ballas, who also stars in the show alongside Jonathan Richards, Joey Beth Gilvert and Robert Henkel Jr. The show runs Thursdays-Sundays, including today, until June 23 at Teatro Paraguas, 3205 Calle Marie. The Thursday-Saturday shows begin at 7 p.m.; Sundays are at 2 p.m. A talk-back will be held after today’s matinee.
To purchase tickets, which are $25, go to brownpapertickets.com or call 505-424-1601 to make reservations.
Looking back to ’69: As part of Santa Fe’s Pride Month festivities, CCA is hosting a special program featuring a documentary screening in honor of the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots. Prior to the airing of the restored 1984 film “Before Stonewall: The Making of a Gay and Lesbian Community,” Santa Fe community members will reminisce about what their lives were like in 1969, the same year members of New York’s gay community took to the streets in response to the police raid at the Stonewall Inn, a Greenwich Village gay bar. The event starts at 6 p.m. Wednesday at The Screen, 1600 St. Michaels Dr. on the former SFUAD campus. Tickets are $15 and can be purchased at ccasantafe.org.
Free fun outside: Also at the Midtown Campus this week, as part of the city’s Southside Summer events, is a free family movie shown outdoors. Guests are invited to dress up in their best monster costume for Friday’s screening of “Hotel Transylvania 3.” The movie will begin around 8:30 p.m., but other activities — including face painting, games and circus tricks from Wise Fool New Mexico performers — start at 6:30 p.m. Guests can bring their own chairs, blankets and picnic dinners. There will also be free popcorn and soda. The festivities are free.
