"The complicated plot is expertly brought to life by a superb cast... the translation by John Alan Wyatt, the rhetoric is eloquent and fast-paced." (An Enemy of the PeopleCritics and audiences are raving about Henrik Ibsen's Gates Ferry Lecture Series: "What is Truth?"
With ripped-from-the-headlines relevance, this
high intensity drama is a powerful investigation of ambition, integrity and the price we pay for truth. Originally published in 1882, An Enemy of the People concerns the actions of Doctor Thomas Stockmann, a medical officer charged with inspecting the public baths on which the prosperity of his native town depends. He finds the water to be contaminated. When he refuses to be silenced, he is declared an enemy of the people. Stockmann served as a spokesman for Ibsen, who felt that his plays gave a true, if not always palatable, picture of life and that truth was more important than critical approbation.
