Follow me on:

Ibsen has returned to Broadway with a captivating production of An Enemy of the People. As with most of his work, Ibsen criticizes the many flaws of society. In the case of Enemy of the People, the Norwegian denounces public greed and ignorance. When a well-meaning doctor provides evidence that the community's medicinal baths (the primary financial resource of the tourist town) has been polluted, thereby causing dangerous side-effects to the tourists, no one wants to listen to him. You can learn more about the current production by visiting the official Broadway play's website.

And you can learn more about the passionate activist playwright, Henrik Ibsen, by reading this concise biography of one of the world's greatest playwrights.
