This fall on Broadway, the political is about to get very personal. In this fast-paced, two-hour thriller, Dr. Thomas Stockmann (BOYD GAINES) discovers a toxic secret that threatens the health of his entire community. The doctor expects to be hailed as a hero, but his brother, Mayor Peter Stockmann (RICHARD THOMAS), believes the information will destroy the town, forcing the men into a passionate confrontation of political will and personal ethics.
4-time Tony® winner BOYD GAINES (The Columnist, Contact) and Emmy® winner RICHARD THOMAS (Race, Fifth of July, “The Waltons”) play the clashing brothers in this scintillating, and often surprisingly humorous, new version of Ibsen’s An Enemy of the People by one of Britain’s most exciting writers, REBECCA LENKIEWICZ.
Tony winner DOUG HUGHES (Doubt, The Royal Family, The Whipping Man) returns to MTC to directan exceptional ensemble cast that also includes MAÏTÉ ALINA, GERRY BAMMAN, KATHLEEN McNENNY, RANDALL NEWSOME, JOHN PROCACCINO, MICHAEL SIBERRY and JAMES WATERSTON.
When Dr. Thomas Stockmann 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. 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 writers, Rebecca Lenkiewicz.
