Director Thomas Ostermeier brings Henrik Ibsen’s tale of a whistleblower into the modern world of environmental and financial crises.

The right thing to do is obvious to Doctor Stockmann when he discovers that the water of his spa town is being contaminated by industrial pollution. But the truth is distinctly inconvenient to a community that relies on selling water to tourists. As the cover-up gathers pace, can he stand alone and avoid being brought to his knees?

This contemporary version of Ibsen’s classic builds to an explosive final act. It is suitable for theatergoers aged 14 and older, and performed in German with English surtitles.
