In Henrik Ibsen’s An Enemy of the People, Dr. Thomas Stockmann is sure that the town will applaud his efforts that have resulted in his discovering that the town’s water is contaminated with toxins. But Dr. Stockmann is in for a big surprise. His information stands to destroy the town financially, as the its healing baths, which are fed by that water supply, are its primary source of income. Will the truth be told?
What if you knew an important truth that could save people’s lives but no one else wanted to acknowledge it? That’s the situation Dr. Thomas Stockmann finds himself in, as he must fight city hall, which is run by his brother and supervisor, the mayor; the press and just about every citizen in town. An Enemy of the People is one of the original whistleblower dramas, and it’s replete with the wit, irony and emotion that make Ibsen’s plays so remarkable.
