An Enemy Of The People

When Dr Stockmann discovers that the public baths of his hometown are poisonous, he immediately sets off to publish his findings and be praised as the community’s saviour. Instead, since the town is economically dependent on the newly opened spa, its politicians and businessmen begin to manipulate public opinion against Dr Stockmann to stop the costly but relevant improvements.

This compelling story of a modern-day idealist in a world of cynics, written by a playwright widely considered to be the father of modern drama, remains shockingly relevant today in ways that equally shock and terrify.

This performance is recommended for audiences aged 15+

The ADC Theatre is Britain's oldest University playhouse, today administered and maintained by the University of Cambridge. Plays have been presented on the site since 1855, when the Cambridge University Amateur Dramatic Club (CUADC) was founded, and the society met and performed in the back room of the Hoop Inn, which stood almost exactly where the ADC Theatre stands today.  Today, the ADC Theatre is the centre of University drama in Cambridge, run almost entirely by students with no Faculty involvement.
