Henrik Ibsen’s An Enemy of the People
August 31 @ 4:00 pm - 6:30 pm$15 – $45
Freely Adapted by Ellen Geer
Artistic Director Ellen Geer migrates Henrik Ibsen’s powerful play to a small town in South Carolina in 1980. It begins when a dinner party is interrupted at the home of Dr. Stockmann, the patriarch of a multi-racial family and medical officer at a popular new tourist spa. A letter brings bad news that the water at the spa is contaminated, threatening the health of visitors and the town’s economy. Powerful people have difficult choices to make in Theatricum’s adaptation of this classic – and extraordinarily timely – struggle of the individual versus society. An Enemy of the People runs through September 28th as part of Theatricum Botanicum’s 2019 Repertory Season, alongside Moby Dick – Rehearsed, The Skin of Our Teeth, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Twelfth Night, and The Gin Game.
