National Theatre of Scotland Production – The Enemy
Written by Kieran Hurley after Henrik Ibsen’s ‘An Enemy of the People’
Directed by Finn den Hertog
A radical re-imagining of the classic play about truth, power and deception from Kieran Hurley, award-winning playwright and screenwriter writer of the critically acclaimed Scottish indy film Beats.
In a once great Scottish town, a massive redevelopment project promises to bring money, jobs and new prospects to its forgotten population. However when Dr Kirsten Stockmann discovers a dangerous secret, she knows she must bring the truth to light – no matter the cost.
A provocative and timely drama about corruption, politics and the media featuring a brooding original soundtrack and live video, The Enemy is a uniquely Scottish take on Henrik Ibsen’s timeless work.
