Description

Dr. Stockmann attempts to expose a water pollution scandal in his home town which is about to establish itself as a spa. When his brother, the mayor, conspires with local politicians and the newspaper to suppress the story, Stockmann appeals to the public meeting - only to be shouted down and reviled as 'an enemy of the people'. Ibsen's explosive play reveals his distrust of politicians and the blindly held prejudices of the 'solid majority'. An Enemy of the People premiered in September 1997, only the third time the play has been staged in London this century.show more

About Henrik Johan Ibsen

Only Shakespeare's plays are performed more frequently than those of Henrik Ibsen (1828 1906). The Norwegian playwright, theater director, and poet scandalized many of his contemporaries as he led the theater into the modern era by exploring the realities behind 19th-century social conventions."show more
