An Enemy of the People

Mar 10 - Apr 15, 2018 In the Albert

Ibsen’s masterwork, “a play so necessary, so exhilarating to experience” (The Village Voice), finds renewed immediacy in this daring new production from Artistic Director Robert Falls.

The contamination of a resort town’s water supply sets the stage for a battle involving the town’s respected mayor, Peter Stockmann, and his brother Thomas, a respected doctor. As the brothers become locked in a combative struggle between political wisdom and personal ethics, the economic fate of the community hangs in the balance—and the unity of the town’s residents.
