When Dr. Thomas Stockmann learns that the famous and financially successful baths in his hometown are contaminated, he insists they be shut down for expensive repairs. For his honesty, he is persecuted, ridiculed, and declared an “enemy of the people” by the townspeople, including some who have been his closest allies. Bozeman Actors Theatre returns to the Museum of the Rockies to stage one of the most frequently performed plays by the “father of modern drama.”

“At a time when America’s political discourse is reaching fever pitch … the play’s heated discussion of just who should control the levers of power in a society, and whether the intellectually superior, forward-thinking individual or the mindless majority should dictate public policy, makes for savory meat to chew on after the curtain has fallen.” —The New York Times
