Socialist Worker

An Enemy Of The People at the Arcola Theatre

Issue No. 2096

Written in 1882 by Henrik Ibsen, this play is an enduring critique of the hypocrisy and corruption of the political system.

This new adaptation by the Arcola presents the work as a comment on the values of modern day capitalism.

Greg Hicks stars as Dr Thomas Stockmann, a man grappling with the cost of telling the truth and asking if human life is worth more than money.

An Enemy Of The People runs at the Arcola Theatre, London, until 26 April. For more details go to ยป
