Tony winner Doug Hughes (Doubt, The Royal Family, The Whipping Man, Defiance) returns to MTC to direct a fresh and provocative version of Henrik Ibsen’s AN ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE and Emmy winner Richard Thomas (Race, Democracy, Fifth of July).  They will join us for an Inside Look.

When Dr. Thomas Stockmann (Boyd Gaines) discovers toxic contamination in the water used at the local baths, he expects to be hailed as a hero. But since the baths are the town’s main source of revenue, the community fights to silence him… and Dr. Stockmann learns that there are forces more powerful than truth. An incisive tale about the high price of free expression, AN ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE makes a timely return to the New York stage in this bold new version by one of Britain’s most exciting young writers, Rebecca Lenkiewicz.
