Dr. Stockmann has made a shocking discovery, but to go public with it will spell the end of his town’s prosperity. The people don’t know that the local baths are contaminated with industrial waste, and if the world finds out, it will send the community into economic collapse. Ibsen’s timely parable echoes with the questions of today as it grapples with how we balance our conscience and our comfort. Censored scientists, environmental crises, the pitfalls of democracy, and anarchist manifestos –  An Enemy of the People is as alive now as it was in 1882. (
