Dr. Stockmann has made a shocking discovery – her town’s local baths are contaminated with industrial waste – but to go public with it will spell the end of the town’s prosperity. With her reputation and relationships at stake, Dr. Stockmann must choose the right course of action. Censored scientists, environmental crises, the pitfalls of democracy, and anarchist manifestos – An Enemy of the People is as alive now as it was in 1882.

★★★½ out of 4 – “This take on Ibsen is the next best thing to a classic.” – The Globe and Mail

Last year this was an excellent production. This year it’s the most exciting show in town.” – The National Post 

★★★★½ – “A definite must-see this season” –

“Highly sophisticated, intelligent, provocative and creative” – Joyce Aster, Tarragon Patron 

“[This show] re-affirms one’s faith in the creative minds and talents alive and well in our fair city.” – Mel Kochberg, Tarragon Patron
