An Enemy of the People Delivers Gripping Drama at the Hilberry Theatre

ENEMY - calendar 400x150

DETROIT – The Hilberry Theatre Company is proud to present Arthur Miller’s captivating drama An Enemy of the People, adapted from Henrik Ibsen’s play.  Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Arthur Miller wrote more than 30 critically acclaimed stage plays and was proud to have begun his literary career right here in Michigan.

Opening February 20 and running through March 28, tempers flare and opinions collide in a small Norwegian town when Dr. Stockmann discovers pollution in the medicinal baths that have made his town a destination.  He and his brother, the mayor, argue over the best course of action; should they close the baths immediately and begin a lengthy and expensive reconstruction process or do they conceal the truth in lieu of shutting down the lifeblood of the town?  The brothers go head to head in a passionate confrontation that takes on political and ethical concerns.

Following the opening night performance on Friday, February 20th, the Hilberry Theatre Company will announce its upcoming 2015-2016 Season, accompanied by a reception featuring light refreshments, a cash bar, and a meet-and-greet with the cast of the show.  Be the first to know what’s in the wings for next year!
