About the Play

Henrik Ibsen's An Enemy of the People  examines how a community responds when a local doctor threatens to expose that the water it relies upon for tourism is being poisoned. It questions how far a community will go to protect their town’s secret in order to avoid financial ruin.

The Collaboration

(lumin)theater lab was part of a brainstorming session with Sod House Theater, Artspace Hastings River Lofts and Hastings Prescott Area Arts Council as part of the pre-work for An Enemy of the People.
