An Enemy of the People addresses the irrational tendencies of the masses, and the hypocritical and corrupt nature of the political system that they support. It tells the story of one brave man struggling to do the right thing and speak the truth in the face of extreme social intolerance.
Written in 1882, the play was a response to the public outcry that followed the performance of Henrik Ibsen's play Ghosts. The performance directed by Lev Dodin was presented for the first time on the 8th February 2013, at the Maly Drama Theatre of Saint-Petersburg.
