Enemy of the People

by Henrik Ibsen (adapted by Arthur Miller)

An idealistic fight for truth can be a lonely one to wage. A small-town story of one good man who struggles against corruption and greed-written by the father of Modern Drama, Henrik Ibsen.

“It flames out of a fiery spirit… Mr.Miller’s adaptation… is compact, idiomatic, and eminently actable, and it also preserves Ibsen’s moral point of view.” – New York Times
