Henrik Ibsen; trans: Paul Walsh; dir: James Bundy.

Play by Arthur Miller
Adapted from the play by Henrik Ibsen
Directed by Kyle Fabel

The strongest one is the one who stands alone.

When Dr. Stockmann makes a poisonous discovery, his brother, the Mayor, begins a war of innuendo and half-truths that threatens to tear their family-and their community-apart.

Arthur Miller wrote his adaptation of Henrik Ibsen's classic play, An Enemy of the People, in response to the political climate fostered by McCarthyism in 1950. Miller asks timeless questions such as: Should the majority always rule? Who is responsible when the majority is wrong? Should a righteous man stand up for truth at any cost or should he compromise for the benefit of his family and his personal well-being? Miller's powerful adaptation is still very relevant today.

"It flames out of a fiery spirit. Mr. Miller's adaptation is compact, idiomatic, and eminently actable, and it also preserves Ibsen's moral point of view." -NY Times.
