When a small town relies on tourists flocking to its baths, will a report of dangerously polluted waters be enough to shut them down? Henrik Ibsen weighs the cost of public health versus a town’s livelihood and skewers the complicity of the masses in his classic and still timely play.

Includes an interview about the Deepwater Horizon, man-made environmental disasters, climate change, and the state of the world’s water supply with Joel K. Bourne Jr., former senior environment writer for National Geographic.

This play is part of L.A. Theatre Works’ Relativity Series featuring science-themed plays. Lead funding for the Relativity Series is provided by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, bridging science and the arts in the modern world.

Recorded before a live audience at the UCLA James Bridges Theater in April 2014.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A well-rounded audio theater experience. Very little in Ibsen’s original work requires theatrical action, and, when it does, the LATW cast—including Richard Kind, Rosalind Ayres, Gregory Harrison, and Josh Stamberg—and the production team do an excellent job of conveying it through sound. Like most dramatic works, the two-hour play is best enjoyed in one or two sittings. Ibsen’s themes remain relevant, almost prescient, nearly a century and a half after he wrote this play.”

About the Author

Henrik Ibsen (1828–1906) was a major nineteenth-century Norwegian playwright, theater director, and poet. He is often referred to as “the father of prose drama” and is one of the founders of modernism in the theater. His major works include Brand, Peer Gynt, An Enemy of the People, Emperor and Galilean, A Doll’s House, Ghosts, The Wild Duck, and The Master Builder. Several of his plays were considered scandalous to many of his era, when European theater was required to model strict mores of family life and propriety. Ibsen’s work examined the realities that lay behind many façades, revealing much that was disquieting to many contemporaries. It utilized a critical eye and free inquiry into the conditions of life and issues of morality.
