About An Enemy of the People Tickets
An Enemy of the People description
An Enemy of the People – Ibsen’s acclaimed play
Love Henrik Ibsen’s work? You’ll enjoy this classic piece of theatrical drama. When Dr. Stockmann makes an astonishing discovery about the waters in his local baths, which are supposed to have healing powers, the future of the town is in his hands. But the people with the most to lose refuse to believe him. The ensuing arguments go a lot deeper than contaminated water, and ultimately the lead character is hated for revealing the unpopular truth.
This new version has been adapted by Thomas Ostermeier and Florian Borchmeyer, conceived and directed by Ostermeier. It’s the first English language production of this critically acclaimed German version of Ibsen’s play, which has been adapted several times for stage and screen. An Enemy of the People opens at the Duke of York's theatre on 6 February 2024.
The plot remains relevant to this day. As Ostermeier said: “As we face the immediate impact of climate change and global warming, and our seeming incapacity to change these burning threats, Ibsen’s An Enemy of the People is unfortunately more relevant than ever. This is an urgent reason to create an English version of the production for London, and I look forward to collaborating with Matt Smith, an actor whose body of work I greatly admire.”
An Enemy of the People tickets – What is truth without power?
Rebellious Ibsen always caused a stir with his work. An Enemy of the People is an 1882 play by the Norwegian playwright, the follow-on to Ghosts, which lambasted the hypocrisy of the country’s moral code. Ghosts itself and the author himself came in for a lot of criticism, criticised as ‘scandalous’, ‘degenerate’, and ‘immoral’. This play is equally bold and critical.
See Matt Smith in An Enemy of the People
Last seen on stage in 2019, in Lungs at the Old Vic, Matt Smith is returning to London for this production next year. He delighted huge TV audiences as Doctor Who, thrilled millions in The Crown, and made an impressive impact in House of the Dragon. His work on movies includes Last Night in Soho, The Forgiven, and Morbius.
Smith stars as the main character Thomas Stockman in this major new revival at the Duke of York’s Theatre in London, on stage from 6th February to 6th April 2024. The rest of the cast will be confirmed nearer the time.
All about An Enemy of the People – Pushing the boundaries of theatre
That’s the thing about doubt – it spreads faster than a disease, as revealed by this thought-provoking play about how the truth in a society is actually not the truth at all – it’s merely driven by power and money. Thomas Ostermeier pushes the form and boundaries of theatre once more in this exceptional production.
