An Enemy of the People
By Henrik Ibsen
Adapted by Arthur Miller
“Without power, what good is the truth?”
A small, coastal fishing community enters into a new era of prosperity and fame when the town’s socially-minded, but prideful doctor convinces his brother, the authoritarian and equally prideful mayor, and other leading citizens to transform the local hot springs into a health resort. But, the town’s new found fortune is balanced upon the edge of a razor after Dr. Stockmann makes a shocking discovery that will set brother against brother and neighbor against neighbor. Though written by Ibsen in 1882 and adapted by Miller in 1950, An Enemy Of The People grapples with timeless, societal themes such as political and social corruption, science denial, media manipulation, power, class and the isolation of the principled versus the tyranny of the mob. “...Standing up for the truth is for the strong, and the strong must learn to be lonely.”
