Enemy of the People, Reviews of Current Productions of the Play

This review contains some comments about current political figures and issues. The reviewers opinions are not a reflection of mine on the current political matters brought up. What I think about these reviewers’ statements about politics is irrelevant to my purposes here. My purpose it to help you see how a 100 year old (older than that) play can resonate with audiences today and to reveal key themes, ideas at work in the play. You’ll learn about the play by reading these. Offer your views on current political matters and people are quite appropriate to this activity.

The Main Reply directions are provided below the three review links.

Ibsen Wrote ‘An Enemy of the People’ in 1882. Trump Has Made It Popular Again.

Here’s a brief excerpt from the review:

“Why are productions cropping up now? What started as a response to a Trump presidency now seems to speak to our times in many ways, with a plot that intertwines an ethically compromised antihero, political extremism, corruption, environmental activism and a lack of accountability for the destruction of a town.”

When you read “the destruction of a town,” you are thinking about Flint, Michigan . . . and maybe the planet? (Remember the man working at the Flint water treatment plant who tried to tell people the plant wasn’t ready for use of the nature soon to be demanded of it? Remember after failing to get authorities attention, he informed family to not drink the water and all of that.)
