See two-time Emmy award winner and The Rockford Files (also seen in The X-Files) star Stuart Margolin on stage at Greenbrier Valley Theatre’s “Enemy of the People.” This play kicks off GVT’s mainstage season and will run from April 27 until May 12th.
Enemy of the People is about a small Norwegian town that survives on the popularity of their bathhouses until one man discovers that the water is contaminated. The events of the play argue that truth cannot prosper in a society where humanity is subordinated to economic growth. To succeed financially, the town and its officials will have to ignore the harm that the springs do to visitors. The crisis brings out the best in some and the worst in others as people decide how to respond to the whistle-blower who threatens their way of life.
Margolin plays Dr. Stockmann. He has the chance to help but he is not ready for the backlash he must face when he endangers the prosperity of his friends and family. Exploring the different relationships that the characters have with each other makes this production so much more than a political thriller. Margolin believes that these deep relationships between the characters and the different subtle nuances make this a very compelling drama.
This play is rated PG. For showtimes and dates, please see our agenda on pages 12-18. To purchase tickets, visit https://goo.gl/n2BrDJ or call the box office at 304-645-3838. For more information, visit GVTheatre.org.
