An Enemy of the People - Ibsen's Classic Play about the Cost of Truth
"An Enemy of the People", adapted by Arthur Miller, is Ibsen's great parable about the costs of the truth, featuring a town in denial of the environmental disaster at the center of their livelihood, the baths, and the idealist Doctor Stockmann who is determined to expose them for the health threat they pose, despite the costs to himself, his family, and his town. Directed by Michael R. Cohen.
