Story

What Is the Story of An Enemy of the People?
Henrik Ibsen’s An Enemy of the People is the story of one man's struggle to do the right thing and speak the truth when surrounded by people who would prefer he keep silent. Dr. Thomas Stockmann discovers toxic bacteria in the waters of his small coastal town in Norway, which have been developed into a spa. The doctor expects his discovery to make him a local hero, but the town has invested a large amount of money toward the building of baths, and, fearing economic ruin, his brother, Mayor Peter Stockmann, warns him to keep his findings secret. Political trickery, opposing personal ethics and sibling rivalry soon play out in Rebecca Lenkiewicz’s new version of this timely play.
