The production will run at the Duke of York’s Theatre from the 6th February until the 6th April 2024.
David Binder Productions and Wessex Grove have announced the full cast joining Matt Smith in the West End reimagining of Henrik Ibsen’s An Enemy of the People, beginning performances at the Duke of York’s Theatre next February.
Joining the previously announced Matt Smith as Dr Stockmann are Jessica Brown Findlay (Katharina Stockmann), Priyanga Burford (Aslaksen), Zachary Hart (Billing), Paul Hilton (Peter Stockmann), Nigel Lindsay (Morten Kiil), and Shubham Saraf (Hovstad).
This production is directed by Thomas Ostermeier, who is making his West End debut with this production which was originally produced at Schaubühne Berlin. Talking about the production Ostermeier said; “It’s a privilege to be starting rehearsals in the West End for the first time with a cast of this calibre, joining Matt Smith as Thomas Stockmann. I look forward to rediscovering the brilliance of Ibsen’s prescient masterpiece with this incredible group of actors as we build an English language production for London.”
Doubt spreads faster than disease in Ibsen’s thought-provoking play about truth in a society driven by power and money.
When Dr Stockmann makes an unbelievable discovery about the healing waters in his local baths, he holds the future of the town in his hands, but those with everything to lose refuse to accept his word. As the battle goes beyond contaminated water, barriers are broken in this contemporary production as Ostermeier shows us why this perennial classic will be relevant forever.
The creative team behind this production has yet to be announced.
