An Enemy of the People
WHERE: Stary Teatr (Duża Scena), Ul. Jagiellońska 1
WHEN: 19:15 (for the English version)
Wrote by Henrik Ibsen in 1882, An Enemy of the People is set in a small spa town in the south of Norway. When Dr. Stockmann discovers that the baths’ drainage system is contaminated, he alerts the members of the community, who initially thank him for the great discovery which will save the town. However, the next morning the town’s major claims that does not believe in Stockmann’s discovery. Even Hovstad, the editor of the local newspaper, influenced by the town’s major, refuses to help Dr. Stockmann, who, in a final attempt of being heard, decides to hold a public lecture on the baths. The lecture, which is disturbed both by the major and the editor, becomes then a long monologue in which Dr. Stockmann condemns the tyranny of the majority and the town’s disinterest towards the poisoned water in the spa.
Dr. Stockmann, portrayed by Juliusz Chrząstowski, will continue his speech to the audience talking about Krakow’s smog, refugees, and other contemporary issues. The line between play and audience finally disappears when the viewers must reflect about and find an answer to the questions posed during the monologue.
Prices: 55 PLN (regular ticket), 35 PLN (discounted ticket).
