A HIGH-INTENSITY, PEDAL-TO-THE-METAL PRODUCTION.
-The New York Times

OVERVIEW

Tony winner Doug Hughes (Doubt) returns to the Manhattan Theatre Club to direct a fresh and provocative version of Henrik Ibsen’s An Enemy of the People, starring four-time Tony winner Boyd Gaines (Journey’s End) and Golden Globe and Emmy winner Richard Thomas (Race).

When Dr. Thomas Stockmann discovers toxic contamination in the water used at the local baths, he expects to be hailed as a hero. But when he discovers that the baths are the town’s main source of revenue, Dr. Stockmann learns that there are forces more powerful than truth. An incisive tale about the high price of free expression, An Enemy of the People makes a timely return to the New York stage in this bold new version by one of Britain’s most exciting writers, Rebecca Lenkiewicz.

REVIEWS

ROUSING & INVIGORATING. At a time when America’s political discourse is reaching fever pitch, the play’s heated discussion of who should control the levers of power in society makes for savory meat to chew on after the curtain has fallen.”

The New York Times

A CRACKLING new adaptation by REBECCA LENKIEWICZ.

Entertainment Weekly

“Boyd Gaines is a MESMERIZING FORCE OF NATURE

USA Today

“RICHARD THOMAS SCORES in this rousing production!

NY1

“DOUG HUGHES’ RICHEST, MOST MUSCULAR WORK SINCE DOUBT.”
