“The majority is never right. Never! Who do you think makes up the majority? Intelligent people or a load of bloody fools?”
Having rejuvenated the fortunes of a crumbling town, eminent doctor Tamsin Stockmann expects to be hailed as its saviour once again when she exposes a major public health risk. But the town’s prosperity hangs in the balance and opposition grows. Will she will lauded as hero of the hour or will Dr. Stockmann be declared an enemy of the people?
Following national tours of their “hugely entertaining” (Daily Info) The Government Inspector and “stonkingly brilliant” (Oxford Playhouse) Don Q, Flintlock Theatre return with a reimagined classic. Employing their signature high-energy storytelling, music and live digital interaction, Flintlock’s irreverent style brings Ibsen’s masterpiece into the 21st century in a searing examination of fake news, whistleblowing and who really wields power in contemporary Britain.
Flintlock Theatre is an associate company of Farnham Maltings. Farnham Maltings supports, collaborates with and invests in artists to make new theatre and reach new audiences.
