For the second time my wife and I drove over from Phoenix to see a play put on by the Olions Club of Los Alamos High School.
For the second time, we were energized by these young people.
“An Enemy Of The People” by Henrik Ibsen is serious drama. We found it amazing that a high school drama group would even attempt to portray such a demanding production, much less deliver it with all the force Ibsen intended.
Although written in 1882, LAHS reset the play in modern times to ease the audience’s connection to the metaphors and message of the play. Simple, yet with a professional quality, the set design also conveyed Ibsen’s message that truth is easily distorted by spin, half truths and outright lies. Windows, distorted as truth was distorted for personal gain, underlined the changing perception of what was real and what was illusion. I doubt there are no more than two other high schools in New Mexico that could accomplish this feat.
