When Dr. Thomas Stockmann discovers toxic contamination in the water used at the local baths, he expects to be hailed as a hero. But since the baths are the town’s main source of revenue, the community fights to silence him… and Dr. Stockmann learns that there are forces more powerful than truth.
An incisive tale about the high price of free expression, Henrick Ibsen's classic An Enemy of the People makes a timely return to the New York stage in this bold new version by one of Britain’s most exciting young writers, Rebecca Lenkiewicz.
Tony winner Doug Hughes (Doubt, The Royal Family, The Whipping Man, Defiance) returns to MTC to direct a fresh and provocative version of An Enemy of the People, starring four-time Tony winner Boyd Gaines (The Columnist, Contact, The Heidi Chronicles) and Golden Globe and Emmy winner Richard Thomas (Race, Democracy, Fifth of July).
