Tom Stockmann discovers dangerous water pollution in the resort that just opened in his Norwegian town. But when he tries to inform the public and close the town’s springs to prevent a health crisis, he faces threats to his and his family’s well-being from politicians and powerful investors who would rather protect the town’s economic engine. An Enemy of the People invites spectators to imagine the price they would pay to maintain their integrity and uphold the truth.
An Enemy of the People is a play about disbelief in science, whistle blowing, leaking information to the press, and politicians who invent alternative facts to appease their base in opposition to those who would risk their lives and livelihood to do the right thing.
