Written in 1882, Ibsen's story of a scientist undermined by others’ greed still rings disturbingly true. Dr. Stockmann has discovered terrible industrial pollution in the town's springs, which had promised to revitalize the economy. Unwilling to pay for decontamination, the mayor — the doctor’s brother — accuses the scientist of fabricating the story, turning most of the town against his brother and his family. Ibsen examines the moral dilemmas inherent in whistleblowing, as well as the often ephemeral nature of truth itself. Directed by Elizabeth Kruse Craig.
