Who Is The True ENEMY?

Afrikaans word of the week: Eish (aysh): General exclamation that can be used in positive and negative contexts.

What is the truth really? Some might say that it is a fact or belief that has come to be true. Others might say that it is what society says is true. It can hurt you and it can set you free but how far are you willing to go to protect what you believe in? In a small town in Norway, Dr. Thomas Stockman has come to believe that the water of the town has been contaminated. With the mayor on his back trying to persuade him to look the other way and the town’s people threatening his family’s life, he has to make the choice. Will he sweep the truth under the rug or is he willing to lose everything for it?

An Enemy of the People is a play that deals with society and class, principles, wealth, politics, pride, hypocrisy and power. It is a drama with a hint of comedy. It’s the life of an everyday family in an average town with laughter, tears, hope and fear. Please come out and support the hardworking cast and crew of MC and support the Theater Department.

I leave you with a quote from the director Matt Bassett on An Enemy of the People, “The truth is a complicated thing.”

Madlene Nel

One part student and one part friend, two parts explorer and four parts drama queen. When you put it all together you’d have a nice apple pie and I just made myself very hungry.

My name is Madlené and I am from South Africa. I have been privileged enough to be able to experience the American culture and get to know a variety of amazing people living here. I enjoy travelling and discovering new places but above all I love meeting new people and learning about their culture while sharing mine as well.

In my free time I enjoy reading a good book or two and of course I am addicted to Netflix (Not my fault . . . it’s those 10 seconds they give you to choose whether you want to go on with the show or stop and I seem to miss clicking the stop button every time). I love writing songs and performing in front of others. Over the weekend I like hanging out with my friends, going to see theatre performances and discovering new places to hike, eat or just to have fun.

 I am majoring in Performance Theatre and want to pursue a career in Musical Theatre.

I am excited to share my college experience with you and I hope you enjoy this journey with me.
