An Enemy of the People

I was invited to speak on my first-ever public panel about science communication and bridging the gaps between science (specifically environmental issues) and policy. The panel discussion followed a live play reading of Arthur Miller’s adaptation of Henrik Ibsen’s An Enemy of the People. Truth To Power Artists performed this world theater masterpiece.

A scientist uncovers an inconvenient truth about the water supplying the town’s vacation spa and proposes that the right thing to do is to tear it all down, clean it up and start over. This plan threatens the flourishing economy of the town, and there is a fierce backlash against the whistle-blower, who becomes the enemy of the people. An Enemy of the People is a timely socio-political and environmental drama from the 1800s. “Theater can be at the forefront of social change; educating, provoking, celebrating, transforming, and healing.” – Actor Jordan Lund
