A high-intensity drama

Description: A world premiere adaption of Henrik Ibsen’s play, An Enemy of the People follows Dr. Stockmann who aims to expose dangerous water pollution in a Norwegian spa town’s public baths. At first he’s seen as a hero, but gradually the whistleblower comes under fire for publicizing a problem that could destroy the town’s economy and reputation. With ripped-from-the-headlines relevance, this high-intensity drama reveals the dangers a single person may face in a quest for truth.

based on the play by Henrik Ibsen; by Kia Corthron; directed by Lyndsey Turner

Play Guides offer students a deeper understanding of Guthrie productions by providing commentaries about the playwright, the play's cultural and historical context and its literary significance, as well as additional sources and questions for classroom use.
