TONIGHT: Ibsen’s An Enemy of the People, 8pm at UVA..more literary/textual events as well..

November 14th, 2013 · No Comments · By

An Enemy of the People by Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen was written in 1882 but has been adapted and updated by all kinds of characters, from Arthur Miller to Florian Borchmeyer, who is currently running an open-ended version of the play at BAM in Brooklyn.

I’m not going to go into extensive detail about its plot or morality (you can look at the wiki page here), suffice to say it’s a canonical play dealing with the difficulty of truth versus convenience. UVA’s drama department starts running a modern adaptation of it tonight at 8pm at Ruth Caplin Theater. More info here and tickets can be purchased here for $14.

There’s also a reading and book signing at New Dominion, Listening to the Land: Stories from the Cacapon and Lost River Valley which is free. Details here.

Lastly, there’s also a screening of Deprisa, Deprisa (1981) at the Coca Cola Movie Studios Building. That’s free and very, very casual (but you do need to wear clothes). Starts at 8pm
