Why See An Enemy of the People?

A timely drama about water poisoning

Henrik Ibsen's gripping political and moral drama heads to the Goodman as part of their 2017/18 season. When Dr. Thomas Stockmann discovers toxic contamination in the water used at the local baths, he expects to be hailed as a hero. But since the baths are the town's main source of revenue, the community fights to silence him? and Dr. Stockmann learns that there are forces more powerful than truth. An incisive tale about the high price of free expression.

Real-life parallels in this gripping political drama

The pillar of a small Norwegian community discovers that the local spa is polluted. After publishing the information, he finds that his neighbors are furious with him for tarnishing the town's main source of income. Should he retract his statement and save his skin? Or hold to the truth and save his professional integrity? The play saw a revival at Broadway's Samuel J.Friedman Theatre in 2012 to rave reviews, starring Boyd Gaines and Richard Thomas. The timely nature of this drama coupled with the ongoing crisis with poisoned water in Flint, Michigan makes the urgency of the story all the more real.
