Los Alamos Resident Carrie Classon was working and living in Lagos, Nigeria when her life, as she knew it, screeched to a halt. Her marriage ended along with her job and company-owned housing.

 

In this situation, some might choose to panic and run back to the U.S. but Classon elected to take another route. She continued to live in Lagos for three-and-a-half years, deciding this was a “good opportunity to stay and figure out what had happened in my life.”

 

Now, she is taking her chronicles to the stage.

Review By BONNIE J. GORDON
Los Alamos Daily Post

The Other Place by American playwright Sharr White is sure to strike a cord with Los Alamos audiences.

At 52, Juliana is a brilliant drug-company scientist. She is giving a speech at a neurological convention.

As she speaks, we cut away to scenes with her doctor, phone calls from her estranged daughter and conversations with her husband.

Review by KELLY DOLEJSI

Los Alamos

 

How can you help someone who doesn’t want help? Director Ramin Bahrani takes on this classic frustration in “Goodbye Solo” (2008, rated R), screening at 6:30 p.m. today in Mesa Public Library’s upstairs meeting-room theater.

 

Set in director’s home state of North Carolina, this award-winning film, which NY Times film critic A.O. Scott calls “almost perfect,” follows the multiple attempts of a cab driver to save his passenger’s life.
