Southern Oregon University

by Henrik Ibsen
Adapted by D. L. Smith

D. L. Smith places Ibsen's iconic character, Dr. Stockmann, in contemporary society in his adaptation of An Enemy of the People. Dr. Stockmann's descent from respected citizen to community outcast is as relevant to today's political vagaries as it was for Ibsen in 1882. The doctor is responsible for a crucial economic development in his town, but the local mayor and news media thwart his efforts to redress contamination that comes to light.

The play is noted for its message that the "the strongest man in the world is the man who stands most alone."
