“It is 1926 in the American heartland, and the famed ‘healing waters’ of Paragon Springs have been mysteriously poisoned. Now, the town’s foremost citizen-crusader, Dr. Thomas Stockman, is determined to know the truth behind this tragedy, no matter the cost. In this vibrant, often funny, and highly theatrical re-imagining of Ibsen’s An Enemy of the People, Steven Dietz puts the lure of capitalism and the greed of small-town self-interest squarely on trial-laced with Dr. Stockman’s lasting cry that “the majority is always wrong!” This is an entertaining and illuminating drama-set amid the birth of radio and the final roar of the 1920s-about the human cost of our political gamesmanship.” ~Dramatists Play Service
