An Enemy of the People - Firebird Summer of Power 2019
An Enemy of the People by Henrik Ibsen
Adapted by Zoe Senese-Grossberg & Leo Lion
Directed by Leo Lion
There's something in the water. In a small town finally on the brink of an economic boom, the beloved medicinal baths are set to become the heart of tourist industry, until the discovery of dangerous bacteria in the water supply threatens to tear the community apart. Dr. Stockmann is respected in town brothers with the mayor, trusted by patients but the quest for truth may well turn this well-meaning citizen into a political agitator facing off against the entire community.
For the second Summer of Power production, Firebird revisits Ibsen's trenchant portrayal of a whistleblower willing to speak the unpalatable truth. What does it take to speak up when everyone else stands against you? How do the powerless defy the powerful? And if power really is in numbers, what does it mean to stand alone?
