An Enemy of the People

Classical Theatre Company - Chelsea Market
4617 Montrose Blvd. Houston

Written in 1882, An Enemy of the People takes aim at a number of issues that were prevalent in Norway at the time: political corruption and the silencing of whistleblowers, the destructive impact of industry on the environment, and the role ethics plays in the media and what they report. Clearly these subjects are not only still relevant today, but remarkably topical once again. The play follows Dr. Thomas Stockmann, a notable and respected doctor in his town, as he discovers that the local water supply and the public baths -- a source of great pride and income for the town -- have become contaminated by local industry and are now poisonous. He struggles with his brother, the town's mayor and one of the owners of the baths, in trying to get his findings published in the town's newspaper. A play, at its heart, about personal responsibility and the rights and roles of whistleblowers, An Enemy of the People could be ripped from today's headlines. See it at the Classical Theatre @Chelsea Market in Houston.
