Florian Borchmeyer and director Thomas Ostermeier’s internationally acclaimed production of An Enemy of the People will land at a yet-to-be-named Broadway theatre during the 2017-2018 season.

The production, which began life at Berlin's Schaubühne am Lehniner Platz and has played at venues across the globe including London's Barbican and the Brooklyn Academy of Music, will feature a new English adaptation by Pulitzer Prize finalist Branden Jacobs-Jenkins.

Synopsis: "A battle rages in the city. The drinking water is contaminated but – never mind the opinion of a local expert – there’s a tourism industry to protect. Factions form: to tell or not to tell? Studded with contemporary music references, Ostermeier’s production brings Ibsen’s dark satire to a boil – and, with help from the people, a solitary whistleblower to his knees."

Exact dates, casting and creative team information will be announced at a later date.

An Enemy of the People is produced on Broadway by David Binder.

The play was last produced on Broadway by Manhattan Theatre Club and was staged at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre from September to November 2012. This new production will mark the play's 10th Broadway revival.
