Don’t miss contemporary playwright Steven Dietz’s modern re-working of Ibsen’s classic Enemy of the People – playing this weekend! Directed by Actors’ and community theatre veteran Tom Kaechele (Assistant Director: Rob Karel), you won’t want to miss this re-contextualization of a classic!
1926, the American heartland, and the famed “healing waters” of Paragon Springs have been mysteriously poisoned. Now, the town’s foremost citizen-crusader, Dr. Thomas Stockman, is determined to know the truth behind this tragedy, no matter the cost. In this vibrant, often funny, and highly theatrical re-imagining of Ibsen’s An Enemy of the People, Steven Dietz puts the lure of capitalism and the greed of small-town self-interest squarely on trial—laced with Dr. Stockman’s lasting cry that “the majority is always wrong!” Paragon Springs is an entertaining and illuminating drama—set amid the birth of radio and the final roar of the 1920s—about the human cost of our political gamesmanship.
