Christopher Hampton's version of Ibsen's classic was first staged at the National Theatre, London, in 1997. Henrik Ibsen (1828-1906), Norwegian poet and playwright, was one of the shapers of modern theatre, who tempered naturalism with an understanding of social responsibility and individual psychology. He has translated plays by Ibsen, Molière, von Horváth, Chekhov, Florian Zeller (including The Father), Daniel Kehlman and Yasmina Reza (including Art and Life x 3). Musicals include Sunset Boulevard and Stephen Ward, both with Andrew Lloyd Webber and Don Black. His television work includes adaptations of The History Man and Hotel du Lac.
Christopher Hampton's new version of the text is also a revelation. Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen was born in 1828. An Enemy of the People has been reborn as a passionate current debate about the value of the individual. The dust has been blown off the original text, and it will not settle for a long time. There is a vitality, vehemence and victory here against the odds. His plays include Peer Gynt (1867), A Doll's House (1879), Ghosts (1881), An Enemy of the People (1882), Hedda Gabler (1890), and The Master Builder (1892). Christopher Hampton was born in the Azores in 1946.

Henrik Ibsen (1828-1906), Norwegian poet and playwright, was one of the shapers of modern theatre, who tempered naturalism with an understanding of social responsibility and individual psychology. His earliest major plays, Brand (1866) and Peer Gynt (1867), were large-scale verse dramas, but with Pillars of the Community (1877) he began to explore contemporary issues. There followed A Doll's House (1879), Ghosts (1881) and An Enemy of the People (1882).

Norwegian Henrik Ibsen’s The Enemy of the People, first produced in 1882, is what we might now call a whistleblower tale. Dr. Stockman, brother of the town’s Burgomaster, Peter, investigates the source of the resort town’s fortunes, The Baths, and discovers it is being polluted, and for the health of locals and visitors, recommends that it be shut down. I have never particularly enjoyed theatre, but the occasional play does stand out. This particular one is my favourite of all time.
An Enemy of the People concerns the actions of Doctor Thomas Stockmann, a medical officer charged with inspecting the public baths on which the prosperity of his native town depends. He finds the water to be contaminated. When he refuses to be silenced, he is declared an enemy of the people. Stockmann served as a spokesman for Ibsen, who felt that his plays gave a true, if not always palatable, picture of life and that truth was more important than critical approbation.
