    An Enemy of the People follows Tom Stockmann, a geologist who discovers dangerous water pollution in the Springs, a highly anticipated resort that recently opened in his Norwegian town. In Tom's mind, the path to a solution is clear: inform the public and close the resort to prevent a crisis. With ripped-from-the-headlines relevance, this high-intensity drama is a powerful investigation of ambition, integrity and the price we pay for the truth. This full scale production is the culmination of the Gates Ferry Series: "What is truth?"
    The roles of Doctor Thomas Stockmann and Mrs. Stockmann are cast.
