An Enemy of the People
In a new version by Jolley Gosnold

A whistleblower fights against the majority when the powerful put profit before public safety.

This thrilling, energetic, and fresh new version of Henrik Ibsen’s fierce political masterpiece is updated for the here and now.

Grenfell should have changed everything.
But nothing ever changes.

No more waiting.
No more hoping.
No more letting ourselves be distracted.
Break and enter.
Put untruth back in its place.
Believe in what really makes sense.
Do what’s right.
Force our way into the present.
Then the future.
Try. Fail this time. Try again. Fail better.
Persist. Attack. Build.
Keep on going.
Maybe one day we’ll win.
But every day, a step forward.

Be the change. Book now.

We do not accept Amex.
