When Dr. Thomas Stockmann discovers toxic contamination in the water used at the local baths, he expects to be hailed as a hero. But since the baths are the town’s main source of revenue, the community fights to silence him... and Dr. Stockmann learns that there are forces more powerful than truth. Previews begin Tuesday September 4 at Samuel J. Friedman Theatre.
