The Enemy

In a once-proud industrial town, a massive redevelopment project promises to bring money, jobs and new prospects to its forgotten population. However, when Kirsten Stockmann discovers a dangerous secret, she knows she must bring the truth to light - no matter the cost.
Author Kieran Hurley (after Henrik Ibsen's An Enemy of the People)

Production details

Henrik Ibsen's iconic play An Enemy of the People is given a contemporary Scottish re-imagining in this brand-new stage adaptation from the award-winning team of playwright Kieran Hurley and director Finn den Hertog. This urgent, provocative new production feels increasingly relevant in 2021. Set during a public health crisis, The Enemy scrutinises corruption and power amidst a changing media landscape and explores what it means to hold power to account in a post-truth political world.
