Event Notes

× An Enemy of the People
Back by popular demand!

Dr. Stockmann has made a shocking discovery – her town’s local baths are contaminated with industrial waste – but to go public with it will spell the end of the town’s prosperity. With her reputation and relationships at stake, Dr. Stockmann must choose the right course of action. Censored scientists, environmental crises, the pitfalls of democracy and anarchist manifestos – An Enemy of the People is as alive now as it was in 1882.

Tarragon Artistic Director Richard Rose again helms an all-Canadian rendition of Schaubühne Theatre Artistic Director Thomas Ostermeier’s visionary, boundary-crushing and acclaimed production. This riveting spectacle returns to the Tarragon stage after its huge audience and critical success this past fall.

“It was thrilling… a must-see” – J. Kelly Nestruck, The Globe and Mail

“Superb… even more topical now in a world where politicians at various levels discourage scientists and tell doctors to stick to their stethoscopes.” – Robert Cushman, National Post

“Intelligent, well-argued and passionately dramatic. Don't miss it.” – Jon Kaplan, NOW
