A radical re-imagining of the classic Henrik Ibsen play about truth, power and deception from Kieran Hurley, award-winning playwright and screenwriter of the critically acclaimed Scottish indie film Beats.
In a once great Scottish town, a massive redevelopment project promises to bring money, jobs and new prospects to its forgotten population. However, when Dr Kirsten Stockmann discovers a dangerous secret, she knows she must bring the truth to light – no matter the cost.
A provocative and timely drama about corruption, politics and the media featuring a brooding original soundtrack by Kathryn Joseph and live video, The Enemy is a uniquely Scottish take on Henrik Ibsen’s timeless work.
Written by Kieran Hurley, after Henrik Ibsen’s "An Enemy of the People". Directed by Finn den Hertog.
A National Theatre of Scotland production
