Art Imitates Life in Latest Thespian Club Project

SARAH DAKOFSKY | Lifestyles

The first week in October La Cueva High School’s thespian club will be performing The Mental State, a drama about one family’s struggle with mental illness and how they learn to survive. Prepare for your socks to be knocked off while you watch this play.

According to Mrs. Hall, rehearsals are going well. “We’re doing some really interesting stuff.” This show has very sensitive material; therefore, Hall wants to “make sure that every actor is really in touch with what they’re doing and they’re not just plowing through it.”

According to The New Play Exchange, “The Mental State explores the human story behind the newscasts, and asks how can we as a national community address the urgent issue of untreated teenage mental illness.”

Performances are scheduled for October 2-4 in the La Cueva Performing Arts Center.

    This sounds like it will be a lot of fun. Hopefully this can shed some light on the subject. I didn’t know that untreated teenage mental illness was an issue; perhaps this performance will inform more people like me.
