An Enemy of the people

october 19 - november 11

Written in 1882, Ibsen's story of a scientist undermined by others' greed still rings true. Doctor Stockmann has discovered terrible industrial pollution in the town's springs, which has promised to revitalize the economy. Ibsen examines the moral dilemmas inherent in whistleblowing, as well as the often ephemeral nature of truth itself. Directed by Betsy Kruse Craig.
