You don't want to go to war on this, Tom. I mean, not now. Not after everything. You don't want to lose more than you can afford.
Brad Birch (Pinter Commission winner, 2016) takes Ibsen's An Enemy of the People into the centre of a very modern scandal. How does Tom Stockmann keep both people and press on side when he makes a discovery about the town's prestigious new Spa?
A taut and rigorous adaptation of Ibsen's classic play, En Folkfiende examines the faultlines of municipal power as media, politics and the public good come head to head in a thrilling drama of the conflict between the personal and the public. En Folkefiende premiered at Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama in May 2016 ahead of a production at the Pleasance, Edinburgh, in August 2016.
