Mar 3

A doctor in a small Norwegian town discovers that the water supply to their new Municipal Baths is polluted and attempts to alert the public and close the spa for repairs.  When his brother, the mayor, conspires with local politicians and the newspaper to suppress the story for economic reasons, the doctor’s fight for truth begins in earnest.

An Enemy of the People will be performed in the WLHS Black Box Studio Theatre at 7:00 pm on March 7, 8, 13, 14, & 15.  Tickets are $5.00 for students and $8.00 for adults and can be purchased online or at the Box Office 30 minutes prior to each performance.
