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, in a new, compelling adaptation.

Seeking:

PETRA:
20s. Thomas’s daughter. A schoolteacher. Adores her father and shares his ideals. Forthright, unafraid to speak her mind. Optimistic.

MORTEN KIIL:
Mid 60s-80s. Mrs. Stockmann’s father. Second generation owner of the town tannery. Cynical and shrewd, with a pointed sense of humor. Doesn’t suffer fools and won’t be played for one. Has a dangerous side in all matters of business.

BILLING:
40s. An employee at The People’s Messenger. Excitable, feisty, on the lookout for the main chance. Vocally liberal, but in reality he blows with the wind. Always spoiling for a fight.

ASLAKSEN:
Late 40s-60s. A printer. Connected to many of the town factions, an organizer. Anxious to ally himself and his constituents with the winning side. Ingratiating and ambitious. A dark and unique “oddball” with an eeriness and a shifty sense of honor.

HORSTER:
40s-50s. A sea captain. By inclination and profession, an outsider. A man of few words and deeply held moral conviction. Rugged, solid. Clear-sighted, he is able to anticipate consequences for the Stockmanns and offer support. Not warm, but kind in ways that count.

TOWNSPEOPLE:
30-50. Working class men, born, raised and working in the community.

The following roles are cast. Auditioning performers will be considered as possible (emergency) replacements, should any become necessary.

DR. THOMAS STOCKMANN:
CAST (Boyd Gaines). Medical Officer at the Baths. Earnest, forthright, passionate. Idealistic to a fault, he believes everyone shares his clear ethical vision.

PETER STOCKMANN:
CAST (Richard Thomas). Thomas’s brother, Mayor, Chief Constable, and Chairman of the Baths Committee. A consummate politician.

CATHERINE STOCKMANN:
CAST. Thomas’s wife. An honest and serious woman. More pragmatic, cautious, and wise in the ways of the world than her husband is.

HOVSTAD:
CAST. 40s-50s. Editor of The People’s Messenger. Right-minded, stalwart, believes in fighting the good fight. An enthusiastic challenger of the establishment. But, as a businessman, he is not immune to political pressure. His ideals lose out to his pragmatism.
