title:  The Full Story

Thomas Ostermeier directs Schaubühne’s 'An Enemy of the People' at the Barbican - 24 - 28 Sept

The director Thomas Ostermeier directs the production of Henrik Ibsen's An Enemy of the People by the Schaubühne Berlin company at the Barbican in London, 24 - 28 September.

The adaptation by Florian Borchmeyer catapults Ibsen into a modern world of environmental and financial crises.Studded with contemporary political and musical references, the production builds to an explosive final act in which the audience is invited to join the debate.

When Dr Stockmann discovers that industrial pollution is contaminating his spa town, he knows the right thing to do. But the inconvenient truth is unwelcome in a community whose survival depends on selling toxic water to tourists. As the cover-up gathers pace, can a solitary whistleblower avoid being brought to his knees?
