About: Like Enemies of the State

A thought-provoking and visually engaging play based on the real-life stories of three child soldiers in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
Having escaped one of the world’s deadliest wars, they find themselves alienated from society and forced to live as outcasts. They, amongst many others, are facing a difficult decision: either retreat into poverty and social rejection or to take power into their own hands by rejoining the battle.

In the summer of 2011, Writer and Director Tommy Lexen travelled through the DRC in an attempt to understand the destructive madness that affects many young children in this region, and the reasons why so many children still are fighting in one of the world’s deadliest wars; a war with more than 5 million casualties.

Like Enemies of the State emerged from his interviews with former child soldiers, street children, local and international NGOs, UN representatives and the Congolese government. This play is based upon these eyewitness accounts. It is their story, a story about the violence of a forgotten generation.
