Theater Auditions: An Enemy of the People
The Company of Strangers Theater, newly relocated theater company from the East Coast, is holding its first Milwaukee-based audition for Henrik Ibsen's forgotten classic "An Enemy of the People." Dr. Stockman has discovered that the public baths recently built are infected with a deadly disease. He pleads with his brother, the mayor, for the town to fix or eliminate the baths, but the mayor refuses for fear of financial upheaval. The lives of the townspeople are at stake, yet the town labels Dr. Stockman an "enemy of the people" for daring to take a stand against such a well-meant cause. With his family's reputation at stake, Dr. Stockman must decide just how far he will go to stand up for the truth.
