When trusted physician Dr. Stockmann makes the shocking discovery that the town's celebrated and profitable spa is toxic, tensions flare. The doctor must defend his findings as he desperately tries to convince city hall of the life-threatening danger, placing his reputation, livelihood and family at great risk merely because he is the bearer of the bad news.

The event, which is presented by Purdue Convocations, includes a pre-show discussion featuring a member of the cast who will talk about the conceptual and artistic motivations behind remounting Ibsen’s classic in contemporary America. The discussion begins at 6:30 p.m. Feb. 25 in Stewart Center, Room 311.

With a plot that could have been ripped from today’s headlines, “An Enemy of the People” explores the impact of severe ecological issues on a small town and one man’s crusade to uncover the truth.
