adapted from Henrik Ibsen by Rebecca Manson Jones
First UK winner of the Ibsen Scholarship.
Our award-wining interactive adaptation, is set in a close-knit fictional town clinging to the coast of the UK by its fingertips. When Doctor Stockmann discovers that her ethical business is contributing to deforestation, she assumes that everyone will want to put things right. It’s a no brainer right? Wrong.
Sister and brother discover that they are bound by blood and divided by philosophy. At the public meeting, where the cast are joined by our chorus of local people, whose voices will be heard? Who is right?
You the audience decide, and the cast perform the ending that you choose.
