AN ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE
In a new version by REBECCA LENKIEWICZ
From a literal translation by Charlotte Barslund
The idealistic Dr Stockmann discovers dangerous flaws in the new spa development that promises huge rewards for his home town and its inhabitants. As he battles against vested interests, important questions are raised about personal loyalty, press freedom and the greater good.
With wit and considerable humour, the play explores these moral complexities, while still honouring the dark heart of the original. This fast-paced, pared-down version of Ibsen’s classic by Rebecca Lenkiewicz packs a powerful punch in its treatment of a story with continuing relevance today.

A modern classic about one woman's struggle to come to terms with her past – brutally separated from her German Jewish parents at the age of nine and brought to England with the promise of a new life. This powerful play is especially pertinent in the light of the current world refugee crisis.

A very silly tale of not much at all! The play is newly created comedy about evergreen characters, known and enjoyed by several generations; it’s a romp of great silliness involving multiple role playing and enormous energy. Bertie Wooster is unwisely co-opted by relations to help achieve various things: obtaining a cow creamer; resolving romantic conundrums; and other similar frivolities. He is patiently assisted by his long-suffering butler, Jeeves.
