In “An Enemy of the Pueblo” a curandera (shaman woman) warns the people in the border town of Milagros of the poisoning of the water, but no one wants to believe her because their economic futures depend on the water in the springs attracting the “gringos” back to the town.  “Josefina López, famous for her breakout play ‘Real Women Have Curves,ˆ’ has taken inspiration from Ibsen’s ‘An Enemy of the People,’ changing one word that shifts the story of the play from frosty Norway to the warmth of a Mexican village called Milagros (miracles) with ‘An Enemy of the Pueblo.’
