Tony winner Doug Hughes returns to MTC to direct a fresh and provocative version of Henrik Ibsen's An Enemy Of The People, starring four-time Tony winner Boyd Gaines and Golden Globe and Emmy winner Richard Thomas.

Why See An Enemy of the People?

When Dr. Thomas Stockmann discovers toxic contamination in the water used at the local baths, he expects to be hailed as a hero. But since the baths are the town's main source of revenue, the community fights to silence him? and Dr. Stockmann learns that there are forces more powerful than truth. An incisive tale about the high price of free expression.

The pillar of a small Norwegian community discovers that the local spa is polluted. After publishing the information, he finds that his neighbors are furious with him for tarnishing the town's main source of income. Should he retract and save his skin? Or hold to the truth and save his self-respect?
