What is currently on at Playhouse (V457)

An Enemy of the People

Brilliant Dr Stockmann, Chief Medical Officer of the Baths, has made a shocking scientific discovery about the standards of sanitation at the popular local spa. Luckily technology has a ready solution: the polluted baths must close immediately, so cleansing and rebuilding work can be carried out. But not everyone sees things quite so simply. What about the impact of closure on tourism, property and commerce? What about the town's wider image and reputation? Dr Stockmann's brother, the Mayor, has one drastic response. The local tradespeople and property owners have another. Now it is up to the liberal press. Dare they print the facts Dr Stockmann has uncovered, and let the public make up their own minds? Ibsen's thrilling play is a searing examination of the intricate workings of power and influence, and an investigation into who holds real authority in society. .
Author Henrik Ibsen
