Event Details

A contemporary reimagining of Henrik Ibsen’s "Enemy of the People"

Genesee Spridco, devising director

Set in 1880s Norway, Ibsen’s play is a classic of political theatre. Its themes of greed, corruption, and the power of propaganda are relevant as much now as when he wrote it. Arthur Miller’s adaptation showed the play’s capacity to speak to mid-century American concerns, and this adaptation, devised by University of Illinois faculty and students updates the original to speak to our own moment.
