About Enemy of the People

Enemy of the People is the fourth commissioned work in the Park Avenue Armory's Social Distance Hall series. Enemy of the People is cancelled from July 10.

Enemy of the People is originally written by Henrik Ibsen. Henrik Ibsen wrote Enemy of the People after public outcry for his previous play, Ghosts. But for the Park Avenue Armory production, Enemy of the People has been adapted by Robert Icke. Ann Dowd is the sole actor in the show, weaving a tale of morality, suspense, and controversy.

Commissioned by Park Avenue Armory and developed during the pandemic, the play centers on a small former manufacturing town that has been revitalized as a resort destination due to its natural hot springs. When a scientist, who is the sister of the town’s Mayor, finds that the water is contaminated and the baths must be shut down, a democratic society confronts, in public and in private, a complex ethical crisis. The audience will be seated at tables and will be invited to vote as a group at critical moments of the story—and the majority vote will determine the play’s direction at each juncture.

A stage adaptation of Enemy of the People was previously scheduled for the 2017-2018 Broadway season. To date, Enemy of the People has been staged on Broadway 10 times
