The Emmanuel College Performing Arts Department is especially proud to premiere a brand new adaptation of Henrik Ibsen's classic play, "An Enemy of the People."
Originally written in 1882, Ibsen's explosive drama recounts what happens when Dr. Thomas Stockman discovers deadly pollutants in his town's water supply, and his fellow townspeople, including members of his own family, pressure him to suppress the story. Emmanuel's all-new adaptation moves Ibsen's play into small-town America at the beginning of the last century, and explores not only the social and political issues of an environmental crisis but also those of the town's first female mayor's struggle to hold on to power.
Featuring a cast of twenty Emmanuel students and sets and costumes designed by many more, "Enemy of the People" promises to be both an exhilarating arts event and the beginning of an important, thoughtful discussion.
Performances are November 15, 16, 22 and 23 at 8 pm and November 17 and 24 at 2 pm in the Emmanuel Auditorium. Tickets are $10 for the general public and free for studetns with a valid Emmanuel ID.
Free for students; $10 for the public
