“Ibsen’s 1882 play, 'An Enemy of the People,' is suddenly as timely as a tweet.” (The New York Times)

A political thriller. A family drama. What happens when the political gets personal? Adapted by Arthur Miller this play has not gone out of style since it was written 139 years ago. The issues of corruption, environmental disaster and fascism have continued, so this play remains stunningly contemporary. Can one family stand up and do what’s true without losing their livelihood and their safety? How much do we owe to our communities?

An Enemy of the People is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York.
