Ibsen's An Enemy of the People Comes to the Mabee Theater StageNovember 18, 2013

Rockhurst Theater continues its season with performances of Henrik Ibsen’s 1882 play, An Enemy of the People, Nov. 21 through Nov. 24, in Mabee Theater.

Set in an economically struggling coastal town in Norway, Dr. Stockmann urges the citizenry to invest in curative baths as a way to lure tourists and their dollars. Success is almost certain until the doctor discovers that the water is teeming with bacteria.

Ibsen’s play is told in a translation/adaptation by Rebecca Lenkiewicz, whose 2012 Broadway production was hailed as bold and new; Alan Nichols directs.

Curtain times for An Enemy of the People are 7:30 p.m. Thursday and Friday, Nov. 21 and 22, and 2:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 23 and 24. Mabee Theater is located in Sedgwick Hall on Rockhurst University’s campus, 54th Street and Troost Avenue. Tickets, sold at the door, are $10.
