Event Series Dates & Times

Where: Lilly Hall Studio Theatre

Lilly Hall Studio Theatre 4602 Sunset Avenue Indianapolis, Indiana 46208

by Henrick Ibsen, a new Adaptation by Brad Birch, Directed by Courtney Elkin Mohler

The original climate change play! An Enemy of the People follows the downfall of scientist Dr. Thomas Stockmann, who discovers toxins in the town’s would-be tourist destination, The Springs. As he attempts to alert the public, he is met with opposition at all sides: from the investors, his brother who happens to be the town’s mayor, the press, and his own family. Ibsen’s 1882 work speaks volumes to our present moment in which economic opportunity is regularly at odds with environmental concerns. This production is set in 2019, and asks its audience to consider the place of TRUTH in public life, and the complexities of the public health versus the economic stability of a community.
