A battle rages in the city. The drinking water is contaminated but - never mind the opinion of a local expert - there's a tourism industry to protect. Factions form: to tell or not to tell? Studded with contemporary music references, Ostermeier's production brings Ibsen's dark satire to a boil - and, with help from the people, a solitary whistleblower to his knees.

BWW Review: A Brand New Look for AN ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE at the Guthrie Theater
by Karen Bovard - May 11, 2018

The plot of An Enemy of the People seems ripped from today's headlines: think Flint, think Detroit. Of course, Norwegian Henrik Ibsen (an iconoclast in his day, generally regarded as "The Father of Social Realism" in western theater history) penned this prescient piece back in 1882. What the Guthrie is producing is a new adaptation by Brad Birch, first staged in 2016 in Wales. It's undergone further revision for this production. Birch's adaptation is most welcome. The familiar story is lifted up to a whole new level by the striking visuals and swift, intriguing transitions devised by director Lyndsey Turner and her design team. (more...)
